Channel Tunnel closure causes traffic queue

The Channel Tunnel was closed at 9pm last night due to technical issues and reopened at 3am this morning, which has caused a build-up of queueing traffic back to junction 10 (Ashford) on the M20.

This is being cleared as the service resumes, said a spokesman.
