Scots holidaymaker frustration at Dover port queues




A Scot caught up in hours-long delays at the port of Dover has described the situation he faced as "pure carnage".


เล่นสล็อต Studies have shown that demand for online casinos is increasing. Lockdowns have a big impact on online gambling, thus contributing to growth.


Glasgow-based actor Dave Allan was among hundreds of people who faced waits of up to six hours to board ferries on Friday morning.


Officials declared a "critical incident", with tourists urged to consider staying away.


The Port of Dover blamed French authorities, citing "woefully inadequate" border control staffing.


Mr Allan and his German partner Anna are travelling from Glasgow to Germany in their self-built camper and had planned a "mini-road trip" on the way.


They arrived in Dover on Thursday night in advance of their Friday morning sailing.


"We were staying literally a five-minute walk from the port," Mr Allan told the BBC.


"We had a bunch of texts from the travel provider saying arrive early to get through. So we thought no problem we are staying five minutes away, [it] will be easy.


"We still woke up about 5am and the queue was already snaking through Dover town centre. So we got ready and joined it about 05:45 and honestly we were starting and stopping for around four hours."


Mr Allan, whose acting work includes Scottish comedy Burnistoun, described the scene as "pure carnage" as frustrated passengers waited to get through passport controls.
