The government is set to allocate £136,000 to Thanet council to spend on the port of Ramsgate to help planning for a no-deal Brexit – after cancelling a £13.8m contract with a company to operate a ferry service to Ofstend.

The news comes as it has emerged that the council is still talking to Seaborne Freight about the potential for a ferry service between Ramsgate and Ostend despite the government cancelling the contract with it.
