Norfolkline have for many years operated a freight service between East Anglia in England and Scheveningen in The Netherlands.   In 2000, armed with two new vessels, they started a service from Dover to Dunkirk/Dunkerque in France.   This article takes a brief look at the progress to date.

In February 2001 at Dunkirk, not only were vehicles checked for illegal immigrants, but all cars had to pass over disinfectant mats for foot and mouth prevention. Dunkirk beach played a significant role in World War 2 when British troops evacuated mainland Europe in 1940.   Nowadays only lone walkers can be found there.
