Channel Tunnel operator, Eurotunnel. has withdrawn their legal claim against the department for transport, over the post-Brexit ferry contracts.

Eurotunnel reached an agreement worth £33m according to the government.

Eurotunnel challenged the government over their decision to award £108m worth of contracts to ferry companies at the High Court.

On Friday, the government revealed a deal with the company to “deliver improvements which will ensure the Channel Tunnel is ready to continue to keep passengers and freight moving post-Brexit.”

This will ensure traffic flow and better security at the border, it will further protect “vital freight capacity” to ensure continued supply of “crucial medicines, medical supplies and veterinary medicines in a no-deal scenario”, the government said in a statement.
