AROUND 100 British lorry drivers were facing the threat of road blocks in Greece last night after angry farmers closed one of the main routes out of the country. The blockade at the Tembi junction, which is the main route for traffic coming into Greece from mainland Europe, has been mounted as part of a domestic dispute over taxation.

Hauliers heading towards southern Europe are being warned by trade body the Freight Transport Association that they may face delays. Farmers' leaders met Greek agriculture ministry officials yesterday but failed to resolve the dispute.
