LONDON (Reuters) - Long queues at the southeastern port of Dover are a material risk if Britain leaves the European Union without a deal, Michael Gove, the British minister in charge of coordinating no-deal Brexit planning, said on Thursday.

Asked about the possibility of queues of lorries in Dover, Gove told a parliamentary committee: “I don’t think they are inevitable but they are a material risk.”
