Talking of the tunnel, one of my customers at the time was almost trapped in the big fire in 1999 but managed to do a million point turn amongst the deluge and go back.
He was returning from Italy from a business trip in an almost new Volvo estate car that was deemed to be written off when he got back home in it, just about every panel was smashed when he had to get out in a hurry.
He never used the tunnel again and I think it was shut for 3 or 4 years after a lorry loaded with margarine caught alight.
I expect the high toll charge is still paying for the loss of revenue and repairs ?
