UK govt admits Christmas disruptions inevitable - report

Ministers in the British government admit it is "too late to fully resolve the problems" related to supply chains in time for Christmas, the Telegraph reported. The issues stem largely from a shortage of truck drivers, exacerbated by Brexit immigration rules.

"The amount of mitigations that can be done for Christmas are minimal," an unnamed government source said. The measures taken are not expected to take effect before 2022 and are instead likely to address long-term supply chain issues.
