TV presenter Dan Snow's mission to bring back home people stranded in France has been halted by officials. The historian had filled three rigid
inflatable boats with 25 people but was told by officials in Calais that he would not be able to return.
It's funny because when this volcano went off and I heard about all the passengers being stranded, I had a random thought, imagining if people
suddenly launched a rescue operation by sea like at Dunkirk.
It's amusing and admirable that Dan Snow did this, but it's also sad that it was halted without any explanation.
Health and safety? I suppose if somebody fell out of a boat and drowned, then Dan Snow and his group would get the hell sued out of them.
