Drivers told to avoid Dover travel on 'Black Saturday'

Port expected to be busy again as holidaymakers are asked to delay their journeys across Channel until Sunday

Motorists have been told to avoid travelling through Dover on “Black Saturday” in a bid to avoid the traffic chaos that trapped thousands of drivers for hours last weekend.

The port is expected to be busy again this weekend as holidaymakers arrive to cross the Channel and they have been asked to delay their journeys until Sunday. Drivers also have been urged to stock up on supplies following last weekend’s severe delays of up to 15 hours when tailbacks from Dover were up to 12 miles long.
