British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday that 127 drivers had applied for trucker visas amid a shortage of drivers that has strained supply chains to breaking point.

Johnson told BBC TV that the haulage industry had only given the detail of 127 international drivers when given the chance to bring workers into Britain. "What that shows is the global shortage," he said.
