    Hi we crossed after midnight a few weeks ago and it was fine, BUT we were advised by the tunnel loader guy to drive for an hour before stopping just in case "they" didn't realise we were not crossing.

    Don't worry I'm sure you will be fine, but if your really worried change your crossing time.

    I've been over twice in the last 7 weeks, out at mid day and early morning, back at early and late evening and had no problems either way. In fact, I took my Mother in Law over early morning and she was expecting to see hoards of immigrants roaming around Calais when we got there ( she had been discussing this with her friends and had received all sorts of tips and information!)
    In fact, we saw 3. I think she was disappointed!
