For those of you travelling to Calais in the near future...Protesters near Calais have blocked the A16 so access to the Calais port/Eurotunnel is very limited today (Monday 5 Sept 2016). The protesters are demanding that the French government set a date by which "The Jungle" camp in Calais will be dismantled and cleared, and vow to protest until a date is set, so it's unknown at the moment when it will be called off. Alternative routes are suggested by Eurotunnel. See their website for information. Safe travels.

Some info on the situation in Calais...

The blocade ended last night (Monday) around 20:30 after the préfète agreed to speed up the dismantling of the camp in Calais (without giving a firm date, due to security concerns) and hold daily meetings with truck drivers, police and farmers until the camp is dismantled.
