According to the BBC 2,000 immigrants tried to get through last night so that affects everyone I'm afraid.

Just got back at the weekend. M20 piled up with lorries. We had to take the alternative route on the A20. A bit slow but no problem. Train left on time and the return trip was incident free.
May be a bit different on the ferry tho'.

G00ner gives the best info regarding the Channel Tunnel and other crossings. If he posts something then only a complete fool would disregard it.

It seems to be changing almost daily. I went out on Thu 23rd and back Mon 27th and apart from a 2 hour delay both ways despite arriving on time according to my booking it was fine. However a few days before and the day after I returned there were serious problems.

Going out next month and will be avoiding Calais as the dockers have said they will continue with their wildcat strikes for the foreseeable future so will be using the Dover-Dunkirk ferry (only an hour longer, an hour longer to linger over a coffee)and will camp the night at the excellent Municipal campsite in Ypres, catch the eight o'clock Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate, and then in the morning go south-east via Vimy Ridge. Calais is best avoided.
