Date Posted: 25th January 2018

Highways England has issued a warning to drivers to expect delays on the M20 due to industrial action in Calais.

Drivers heading to Dover are being advised to plan their journeys and allow extra time.

Drivers heading for the Channel Tunnel are advised to turn up on time for their booked departure.
