Traffic chaos and school dinners at risk in ‘no-deal’ Brexit, Kent Council warns



Kent County Council fears school meals could be compromised and migrant numbers could increase in the event of a “no-deal” Brexit.

Sky News has seen a report outlining the council’s preparations for the UK leaving the EU without an agreement in place. The document also warns:

:: 10,000 extra lorries would have to be “routinely” accommodated in Kent – creating traffic so bad that carers would be unable to reach patients, teachers would struggle to get to schools, and council staff would have to work from home

:: Waste collection could be delayed and disrupted

:: The administration of GCSEs and SATs could be compromised
