Intelligence sharing channels have been set up and drivers have been taught how to be extra vigilant to avoid disaster.

Heavy Goods Vehicles have been hijacked on the Continent and used in terror attacks — most devastatingly in Berlin last year when 12 Christmas market shoppers were ploughed down by a crazed ISIS fanatic.
