A second day of diversions will be in place on the M20 this morning due to problems at the Channel Tunnel.

Non-freight traffic travelling in the direction of Folkestone and Dover will be diverted onto the A20 from Junction 8 (Hollingbourne) and rejoin the motorway at Junction 9 (Ashford West).

This allows backed-up freight traffic to park on the coast-bound carriageway.

Kent Police say drivers should leave more time or find alternative routes as 'Operation Stack' continues.

What is Operation Stack?

Operation Stack is where parts of the M20 are used to queue lorries travelling towards the continent, to avoid causing gridlock across Kent's road network.

It is introduced as an emergency measure.
