    We are travelling on the tunnel around 9am on Tuesday from France.
    The reporting of the lorry protest seems to be non-existant so does anyone know if it is still going on?
    We are avoiding the A16 and getting to the terminal on side roads but perhaps there's no need anymore.

    I was in Calais on Monday. The blockade and protest was lifted that evening. Everything back to normal on Tuesday morning. No problems on ferries Wednesday morning.
    There were 4 armed soldiers before check-in, then French customs, then British customs, then P&O.
    On arrival at Dover I was invited into the customs line, offered passports but they were declined, the young lady was with Animal welfare and wanted the dog's passport!
    He confirmed he had nothing to declare and his passport was in order and we were allowed to proceed.

    We were at Calais yesterday mid-morning. As ever, all good, no sign of anything.
