Traffic in and out of the Port is now moving freely following disruption this morning. TAP remains in place and active to clear the last of the backlog.
We thank Port of Dover Police and Kent Police for their quick response and apologise for the delay caused to your journey.
Doug Bannister, CEO, Port of Dover, said “the Port implemented its tried and tested resilience plans in order to deal with the impact of the protest. The Port has consistently shown its ability to deal with such challenges and today’s targeted activity shows once again the importance and symbolism of Dover to the nation as a critical trade and tourism artery on which the UK continues to rely. We worked with our customers and the police authorities in managing the situation quickly and apologise to our community for any disruption caused by a situation not of our making.”
