    Hi

    Does anyone know if there are still food restrictions in France. I am catching a ferry on the 15th and I don't want to have to throw any food away at the ferry terminal. Thanks. :thumb:

    We went over to France 4 weeks ago & returned last week - no restrictions at all, I phoned DEFRA who assured me restrictions have been lifted for 'foot & mouth' but don't know about this 'blue tongue' . . worth just giving them and the ferry company a quick call

    A posting on the dark side states that staff at the Hull ferry terminal were confiscating all meat and dairy products last Saturday.

    Hi

    Thanks for all the replies. I have looked on the DEFRA web site and is is not very clear, so I will ring the ferry company as vicdicdoc suggests, again thanks.:thumb:
    P.s It's it's a bit mad at the moment :Eek!::Eek!:emptying my van ready to pick up a new one on Tuesday and then catching a ferry the following Sunday. I will be glad when it's the Thursday after the ferry and I will be in sunny Spain.:thumb:
