With Brexit drawing ever closer, some businesses in the south east have expressed concerns about the potential grid-lock that customs checks could cause in a no-deal Brexit scenario.

Alcaline Haulage, a firm in Lympne, has invested approximately £1 million in a helicopter in order to combat any future transportation issues.

Alcaline Haulage hopes their investment in the helicopter will ensure that their clients are unaffected by any major future delays.
