Leading authorities of the EU could completely shut down all sorts of connections with the UK, after the decision of some EU member countries to do so. Bild has respective data at its disposal.

The Eurotunnel under the English Channel has been closed due to the decision of the French government to close the borders. Belgium also closed borders at least for 24 hours.

According to the German outlet, the EU will follow this path and close all passenger connections to and from the UK, including the maritime and railway routes. It means that all seaports will be closed for the British vessels, too.
