With the ongoing crisis at Calais, UKIP have today called for lorries to be shipped via the Port of Ramsgate.
UKIP Leader Nigel Farage said: "Rather than parking lorries in Ramsgate, we must begin shipping lorries via the Port of Ramsgate. The chaos in Calais is now a national economic problem of great urgency that requires a new approach."
UKIP's Leader of Thanet District Council Cllr Christopher Wells said: "Here in Thanet we're only interested in moving lorries, not parking lorries. If the government prefer to park lorries then they can do it elsewhere but we would be delighted to assist in moving the static Operation Stack through Ramsgate to the continent."
