Desperate truckers stuck at Dover given food, drinks and Christmas cheer, thanks to The Sun

THE Sun stepped in to help truck drivers stuck at Dover yesterday — and gave them a bit of Christmas cheer.

We handed out 200 mince pies, 160 sausage rolls, 70 pork pies, 30 substantial Scotch eggs and 20 Cornish pasties.

Truckers washed them down with cups of tea and coffee — and of course we handed them copies of Britain’s best newspaper to keep them entertained.

Geordie Peter Graham, 51, said: “Thanks to The Sun for helping us truckers with these treats.”

Francisco Jose Pegueno, 51, who fears he will not get home to Portugal to see his two kids for Christmas, said: “We’ll definitely be reading The Sun while we’re stuck here . . . and the food is great!”

And Russell Elphick, 54, from the West Midlands, slapped a Sun sticker on his cab and said: “This is amazing from The Sun. It’s a nice thing to do.”

French leader Emmanuel Macron has been forced to reopen his country’s border with the UK.

He caved in after pressure from Britain and the EU to end a 48-hour blockade imposed amid fears over the new Covid strain.

Drivers destined for France can now show any recognised Covid test to gain entry.

PM Boris Johnson deployed the military to UK ports to carry out lateral flow tests on up to 6,000 lorry drivers a day.
