Lorry drivers clash with police over Dover backlog

Published on December 23, 2020 by

Lorry drivers have clashed with police in Kent as they continue to be held up by the French travel ban.

Footage shows a handful of police officers attempting to push back a small crowd in Dover on Wednesday morning.

It comes as Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick warned it may take a “few days” to clear the backlog of around 4,000 lorries waiting to cross the Channel.

France has lifted the travel ban, but said those seeking to cross into the country from the UK must have a negative coronavirus result.
