Farmers in France continue protests and road blockades

Farmers in France are reportedly continuing to take part in roadblocks to protest food prices, which they blame on foreign competition. Roadblocks have caused traffic delays on roads leading into cities and at tourist destinations. On Sunday and Monday, trucks carrying food into France from Germany or Spain were stopped. Cars were allowed to pass, but traffic was delayed.

Advice For Travellers

Travellers to France and those travelling to and from Spain or Germany should be aware that, at times, farmers are blocking roads. This action by farmers is expected to continue, so have alternate routes planned.
