Professor Andrew Serdy speaks to BBC News website about French patrols on cross-Channel ferries

Published: 3 August 2016

Following the news that French police have not started patrols on cross-Channel ferries, in a bid to prevent attacks by terrorists, Professor Andrew Serdy spoke to the BBC News website. The patrols started on Monday, however there is no agreement as yet in place for French police to patrol any vessels in UK waters. As such they arrived by helicopter and boarded a ferry as it approached France.
