Cross-channel road services are being severely disrupted with Calais effectively on lockdown as hundreds of lorries form running blockades, to protest against the Jungle migrant camp.
Drivers have been reporting for some time that migrants desperate to reach Britain have been erecting barricades to force lorries to stop so they can jump on.
In recent weeks gangs of people-smugglers have reportedly taken to hurling objects like rocks and even shopping trolleys at cars to make them crash in order to divert attention from migrants stowing away in empty vehicles.
The protest is going ahead despite a promise by the French government to remove the camp by October.
Our latest information is that protestors have now blocked the A16 road to the port and have also blocked all access to the Channel Tunnel, which means getting to and from France via that route is impossible.
Kent Police is monitoring the situation and assessing what, if any, impact there might be in Kent
