It was part of the country's no-deal Brexit preparations

The British government has decided to cancel a ferry contract awarded to a firm with no ships.

Seaborne Freight was meant to carry goods through the port of Ramsgate in the event of  no-deal Brexit, but its backer has pulled out of the deal.

The UK transport secretary was widely criticised over the 14 million euro contract.

There was further embarrassment when claims appeared on line claiming there terms and conditions in the contract had been copied and pasted from the webpage of a takeaway company.
