Calais strike: How roads, ferries and trains are affected

A strike which forced the suspension of Channel Tunnel services and led hundreds of migrants to try to board UK-bound lorries is now over but some travel delays continue.

Here is the latest situation on the roads, trains and ferries.

M20 in Kent is closed coast-bound between Junction 8 (A20 Maidstone Services) and Junction 9 (A20, Ashford North) because of Phase 2 of Operation Stack, where parts of the motorway are used to create a queue for lorries travelling to the continent. Non-commercial traffic is being diverted on to the A20 and lorries will be directed back on to the M20 to be parked.
