Traffic around England's Port of Dover disrupted by protest

Traffic around the Port of Dover, England's major sea connection with France, has been disrupted as a result of a protest by environmental activists

The four-hour protest was given the go-ahead by local authorities within certain limits and Extinction Rebellion insisted it would "not cause any disruption to vital supplies," such as medicines.

Highways England urged travelers in a tweet to be aware of disruptions.

Protesters also hung giant banners showing the Extinction Rebellion "XR" emblem from Dover Castle and the town's iconic white cliffs.
