High winds in the English Channel have led to cross channel ferry delays and a backlog of freight traffic on the M20 in Kent.
Operation Stack, where part of the motorway is used as a lorry park, was brought in on Thursday evening for the fifth time this year.
Two ferry operators cancelled crossings because of high winds. P&O Ferries vessels had difficulties docking. SeaFrance stopped day trip bookings until Monday.
Strikes by crews in France added to the delays for SeaFrance and SpeedFerries.
On the motorway, the coastbound carriageway was closed between junction 11 at Hythe and junction 12 at Folkestone with the area being used to manage freight.
Police urged motorists to avoid the area and said local traffic was being diverted on to the A20.
Coastbound drivers were warned to leave the motorway at junction 10 at Ashford, while London-bound traffic was still flowing.
