Operation Stack on the M20 has in excess of 5,000 vehicles held up in it.
While Eurotunnel (Folkestone to Calais) and ferry operators DFDS and P&O have operations running to Dunkirk and Boulogne (outbound only with P&O), stack is not reducing.
All hauliers should decide if the journey is absolutely necessary, and if it is they should consider using an alternative UK exit point rather than Dover/Folkestone.
Those still intent on heading to Kent should make sure they have food and water since there could still be several days of waiting.
The Kent Resilience team are making efforts to get food and water to those vehicles already in stack, but please appreciate it is a mammoth task.
All non-freight traffic heading coast bound on M20 is being advised to leave at Junction 6 and find an alternative route.
