Lorry parks plan could stop Kent HGV noise and waste nuisance

A network of lorry parks could be built across Kent to help residents who say their lives are blighted by trucks parking at night outside their homes.

The aim would also be to stop heavy goods vehicles queuing on the M20 when there is disruption at the Port of Dover.

Kent County Council has shortlisted three possible sites for the first park.

BBC South East Today's Jon Hunt spoke to residents Stephanie Rajick and Michael Holliday, who are affected by noise and rubbish from the lorries, as well as Natalie Chapman, of the Freight Transport Association, and Councillor David Brazier.
