BREAKING: Operation Stack officially in place

Wednesday 16th September 2020

OPERATION Stack is now in place on the M20 near Maidstone.

Lorries are now parked between Junctions 8 and 9 following a police operation at Kent ports in which all vehicles and passengers were being checked.

The policing operation has now been stood down and border control checks are returning to normality.

One eyewitness said: "Only freight is being allowed between junctions 8 to 9 coastbound. The A20 is getting very busy already and this is only the beginning."
