British carmaker Aston Martin considers flying in parts after Brexit amid Dover port concerns



The boss of Aston Martin says border problems after Brexit could leave it unable to use Dover to send and receive parts.
 
The British carmaker is examining contingency plans amid concerns that the port may not cope with the increase in red tape expected after the UK leaves the European Union.
 
 
The firm's chief executive Andy Palmer says it is considering relying more on air transport, particularly from Coventry and Birmingham, which are closest to its Gaydon plant in Warwickshire.


The company is also considering using the port of Sunderland instead of Dover.
