Dozens of trucks took part in a government exercise Monday for coping with possible Channel gridlock caused by a no-deal Brexit, assembling on a disused airport runway that could be turned into a giant lorry park.As part of the test, the vehicles then made two trips in convoy to and from the port of Dover, a 32-kilometer journey, along a route far less used by trucks than the main highway from London.A ministry spokeswoman said 89 trucks participated, costing 48,950 pounds ($62,500) for the fleet.
