Visiting UK Border staff in Dover following an increase in asylum seekers attempting to reach Britain in small boats, Home Secretary Sajid Javid says that if asylum seekers are genuine they should apply in the first safe country they reach such as France.
Truck drivers on both sides of the Channel have voiced concerns about post-Brexit chaos at the UK-France border. The stakes are high on the British side, especially in Dover, where 10,000 heavy goods vehicles arrive every d ay in a perfectly orchestrated symphony of comings and goings.
See what happens when a group of Hospital fans from Newcastle decided to undertake a road trip all the way to Let It Roll in the Czech Republic!

Here’s a bit from them:
We drove from Newcastle to Dover picking various people up on the way. We caught an overnight ferry to Calais and continued driving into Belgium, where we slept in a lorry parking lot on the side of the motorway. The next day we continued through to Germany where we attended Annafest in Forchheim. This was the first beer festival I had ever been to and its safe to say I will be going back!
After another ‘comfortable’ nights sleep in the car we drove into the Czech Republic for a night out in Prague. This nights events stay with those who were unfortunate enough to witness them…. the next morning we gathered our wits and made our way to LET IT ROLL!
The festival was incredible, such friendly, happy people and the music blew me away!
I hope my film gives you some idea of the what it was like to undertake this journey!
