Port of Dover 'working hard' to get Tunnel traffic across

The Port of Dover has been "working hard" with ferry companies to help get Tunnel traffic across the Channel after a broken down-train forced an evacuation and caused major disruption for travellers.

"The port continues to maximise available capacity for the additional traffic whilst maintaining a first class service for customers already heading to Europe's busiest ferry port," a Port of Dover spokeswoman said.

"The port continues to monitor the situation closely, in liaison with its ferry partners. Freight traffic entering the port is currently heavy, due to the issues at the Tunnel.

"Tourist traffic is flowing freely into the port but passengers are advised to allow extra time for their journey."
