British motorists in Calais to be allowed to drive on the left for ONE DAY in radical attempt to attract more tourists to the port city
Britons travelling to Calais may be able to drive on the left hand side of the road
High ranking politicians in northern France want to lure tourists back to the city
The radical idea could be tested during one of the May bank holidays next year
Visit numbers have dipped after becoming synonymous with the migrant crisis

Seriously I don't think they have quite understood the problem the tourism trade in the area is suffering.

My calendar is wrong. It says July 3rd. However it is really April 1st.

Cave - it's a French word meaning Cellar.

When you get to Calais, look for "Cave du Vin", fill up the boot of your car with cheap wine, then drive home again.
