King's Lynn Town found themselves caught up in a huge traffic jam as they attempted to get to their National League away match in Kent this afternoon.

Drivers are suffering six-hour waits to get into Dover because of a lack of ferries and the authorities have implemented Operation Brock to use the M20 as a car park.

The Linnets finally got to the Crabble Stadium, home of the Dover, two hours late, but the game will kick off on time at 3pm.

The match is a big one for the Linnets. A win over already-relegated Dover would continue recent decent results and keep up their hopes of escaping the drop themselves.

Capacity at the Port of Dover has been reduced due to the suspension of P&O services after it sacked 800 of its British staff.

Dover MP Natalie Elphicke said: "The traffic disruption caused by P&O's actions is very serious", adding that the adverse weather and Easter break had made the situation "severe" and likely to continue for days.
