    Just had a text message from @busby who has only just disembarked at Calais, that although protest today is just about over, lots of refugees playing 'silly buggers on the A16...lots of police about so hopefully no worries'.

    Just passing on so be aware (y).

    We arrived on the tunnel at about 6pm local time, took local roads out. Saw a couple of gendarmes observing A16 from above, also further on they'd stopped a vehicle, don't know if it was related to migrants or not.

    Nothing out of the ordinary really.
