Calais: Eurostar, Eurotunnel and ferry services return to normal
Cross-Channel services resume after wildcat strike caused closure of northern French port, but lorries still backed up on Kent’s M20
Cross-Channel ferry and train services were returning to normal after a wildcat strike at Calais by French ferry workers brought chaos for passengers travelling between the UK and France.
There were long queues for the Eurostar at St Pancras on Wednesday morning but the first trains left on time. Eurostar was returning to a “full and normal service”, although customers were advised to allow at least 45 minutes to check in, while P&O Ferries said its Dover to Calais crossings were fully operational with spaces available.
Travelling to @Port_of_Dover or @LeShuttle? @Kent_Police continue to manage #OpStack. #M20 closed J8 – J9 coastbound. http://t.co/0CYVamgIMU
