New security checks for travellers heading to France cause tailbacks of up to 20 hours for some.Read the full story ›
Travellers heading towards Dover could face delays for weeks to come, police have admitted after a weekend of gridlock on the roads.
UK Border Force officials were drafted in to help after extra security checks which were introduced following recent terror attacks caused miles of tailbacks.
Kent police said the situation was back to normal by Sunday night, with those on the roads facing a wait of about 30 minutes on the A20 approach to Dover.
However the force said that the "large volume" of holiday traffic coupled with heightened security checks "could however mean some delays over the next few weeks".
They had initially predicted severe disruption could last into Monday.
As police warn disruption at Dover is set to continue, volunteers who came to the aid of stranded motorists offer further assistance.Read the full story ›
A woman with multiple sclerosis travelling to Germany for potentially life-changing treatment has said she endured a 20-hour ordeal due to severe delays at Dover.
Tanya Cudworth, 50, was travelling to a clinic in Frankfurt to undergo stem cell treatment for her condition after raising £5,000 for the trip.
She told the Press Association, that she set off from Tunbridge Wells at 8.30am on Saturday with her partner but they did not board a ferry until 4.20 am on Sunday.
Ms Cudworth described the experience as "absolutely horrendous".
I'm taking the trip to get this treatment that I hope will keep me from having to go in a wheelchair. It's not available on the NHS and we've done some fundraising. It's a good job I didn't have to be at the hospital sooner - 19 hours in the car has obviously aggravated my symptoms.
Ms Cudworth also claimed the couple "didn't get any water until 3am".
"I saw women with babies, young families and people with pets with no water. It's shocking that more wasn't done to get it to people, the authorities weren't anywhere to be seen."
"My partner has been a lorry driver since he got his licence and he has never seen anything like it here or abroad," she added.
