Their boost came as Michael Gove rubbished reports that exports to the Continent have crashed by 68 per cent.

The Cabinet Office minister said the discredited claims were based on “erroneous” figures.

Dover’s chief operations officer Sarah West said new IT systems at the border are allowing trade to “flow smoothly”.

The Cabinet Office said GB-EU trade flows across all ports are running at 98 per cent of usual.

But Mr Gove admitted there have been problems with the Northern Irish border fix and it “isn’t working at the moment."
