BBC website reports that European / Irish freight traffic is 50% down. Apparently, European traders are sending their containers directly from French Channel
Ports to Irish ports. This avoids their traditional route which was cross channel DRIVE through UK then cross Irish Sea from Wales. Apparently some 40% plus of the old traffic goes the new way and a new shipping line has also opened. So, far less pollution and danger on our road network. Whilst surely a loaded ship is far more sustainable than even a 40 ton lorry. Win win

You must take your silver linings where you can.
