New rules on travel to UK – passport required

Brexit’s causing havoc, again! This time among fervent Catalan Dragon fans who desperately wanted to support the local heroes at the final in Old Trafford this weekend.

From the 1st October, however, the rules have changed and entry into the UK for French (and other European) nationals requires a passport… not something everybody has!

Oh yeah, and…

Allez les Dragons!!
