LILLE, France: Despite London and Brussels reaching a trade deal to limit the fallout of Brexit the flow of people and goods across the Channel will change significantly on January 1, when Britain’s departure from the EU becomes complete.
Britain leaves the EU single market and customs union at 11 p.m. (2300 GMT) on December 31, which is midnight in Brussels.
As the free movement of goods and people across Britain’s borders with its neighbors comes to an end, AFP looks at how travel and trade with France will be affected.

Around 60,000 passengers and 12,000 trucks cross the Channel between Britain and France each day. (Reuters)
