    :( Sorry no.... we came via Dunkuerqe today. BUT The chaos around the A16 joining towards Calais made us decide on alternative route. It seems loads of HGV drivers agreed as the northern route was very busy (D300)
    Gendarmerie very visible by their presence. ;)

    Came back this morning, A16 shut so went on back roads to tunnel added 20 mins max.

    Lots of police and army but didn't see anything else.

    Tunnel train was empty
