Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• About 15 British truckers were on their way home this week after Greek hauliers eased a blockade which left them stranded for eight days on the Yugoslav border.

But only West European drivers were allowed to continue their journeys. The Greeks. who are protesting about increased transit charges through Hungary, are still holding Hungarian and Czech drivers.

UK operators are bitter about the blockade. Alton, Hantsbased A&H Transport had a truck delayed for over a week. Owner Andrew Williamson reckons that he has lost 1,600.

Taunton-based Paul Selway had to pay for his driver to take a ferry to Italy to avoid the logjam: he fears that the problem of foreign truckers disrupting international haulage by taking the law into their own hands is getting worse.
