Just received an email from the ayuntamiento , local council, reminding of us of the restrictions on movements. Basically we mustn't go out unless it's for essentials and then only one person can go. We know that the policia are stopping traffic and asking where people are going because a neighbour was stopped at a road block and questioned this morning. It is being taken extremely seriously here and it looks as though two weeks isn't going to be the full duration of the lock down.

I detest that americanism, though I suppose it is apt.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Yup we are all or will be prisoners - which is where " lockdown " came from - dealing with rioting inmates....

Those 70 + year olds can be really vicious and give you a nasty injury with the Zimmer frame (provided that you pick them up from the floor afterwards ). 😲

Same here Alan Police patrolling and insisting that people do not walk anywhere together!

Finally got through to Nationwide travel insurance and they will extend in an emergency.
Car insurance (John Lewis) the same.

Pet insurance (Pet Plan) are adamant that any condition needing treatment after the 90 day limit will not be covered. I told them that I might as well cancel the policy as it is useless to me in my present circumstances!

Not quite at the 90 day mark yet but it is getting close (25th).

Anyone know for definite that ferries are all cancelled?

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifes savings. Guess what? He robbed us of 750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

Brittany Ferries info the same as yesterday:

https://www.brittany-ferries.co.uk/f...ailing-updates

Le Havre has very few,

St Malo supposedly normal

Caen supposedly normal

Spain much more problematic need to actually check with them

In other words check, check, check and yet again ch ck

The French scenario and availability may change after tonight's Macron announcement so "watch this space" and then check again....

The EU won't like the EU doing that Ray. It's breach of the freedom of movement principle.

Did you not get the option to leave your number for a call-back Pat? That worked very well for me.

You were very sceptical when I posted such a few days ago but here you are posting similar.

Don't know if it's any use to you Pat but I've just read this on the BBC news app. The FO might be able to give you some advice.

Britons stuck abroad due to travel restrictions have been advised to contact their airline, as well as the Foreign Office by calling +44 (0)207 008 1500, so that the government knows they are trying to get home
