Dover-Folkestone queues LIVE: 'Hotspot of holiday hell' Critical incident declared in Kent

Dover’s traffic chaos saw a family “stuck in the queue for about 22 hours”, as the UK and France continue to argue over who is to blame for the gridlock.

Alexandra Sievert, from Switzerland, was stranded for nearly an entire day to return home via France from a holiday in Cornwall.

As tens of thousands of cars waited to be processed in Dover over the weekend, Ms Sievert described the situation as “unimaginable”.

She said: “We were stuck in the queue for about 22 hours in total to catch the train to France.

“The heat is brutal when you sit in the car for hours and can’t do anything.”

The Swiss woman said she had walked about three kilometres to get a drink, as according to Ms Sievert no water was distributed to those trapped in miles of tailbacks.

“The worst thing,” Ms Sievert told national outlet Blick, “is that we received no information. No emails, no phone calls, not even the police do anything.”
