By Chris Britcher

Eurotunnel says it recorded the highest freight traffic in its history for June on its Le Shuttle service.

It delivers back-to-back record-breaking traffic after bumper May figures.

It saw 142,016 trucks transported last month - beating the previous record established in June 2016.

Le Shuttle passenger traffic in June increased 4% compared to June 2017 with 239,935 passenger vehicles transported.

Since the start of January 2018, nearly 1.2 million passenger vehicles have crossed with Le Shuttle.
