8094161676?profile=RESIZE_400xTRANSPORT ministers have been warned there will be ‘severe consequences’ if Whitehall doesn’t provide £20m to fund Brexit border upgrades for a port.

Mike Sellers, director of Portsmouth International Port, claimed the transport hub is under huge strain to prepare for Britain’s divorce with the EU.

The port is facing ‘challenging’ and ‘very tight timescales’ to implement the enhancements by July 2021 – a date Mr Sellers branded as ‘extremely ambitious’ and ‘highly unlikely’.

The ferry terminal will need to create new border checkpoints, which would require acquiring land ‘adjacent to the port’. Live animal compounds would also have to be constructed.
