UK meat exports delayed for days due to new Brexit customs rules

According to BBC British meat exports are facing long delays, sometime for days, because of extra customs checks and paperwork after the end of the Brexit transition period.

The meat producers’ trade body says exports are at just 25% of normal volumes for the time of year. They say the new rules are “not fit for purpose”.

The UK exports £15 billion worth of food and drink to the EU every year. A third of it is perishable meat, fish and fresh produce.
