Eco-protesters block Dover ferry Port aggravating HGVs nationwide shortage problem.

ECO-PROTESTERS this morning blocked the Port of Dover - despite the nationwide trucker shortage.

Cops attempted to drag the Insulate Britain mob away from the busiest port in Europe as they brought freight lorries grinding to a halt.

Around 40 activists targeted the A20 at the Eastern Docks roundabout in Kent, as well as the junction with Union Street for the Western Docks.

A spokesperson for the group apologised for "the disruption we are causing" - but the protesters plonked themselves on the road anyway.

Angry motorists quickly lost patience and confronted the "disrespectful" demonstrators.

One shouted: "Do you really think stopping a couple of lorries is going to do anything? You're just p***ing everyone off."

Another woman caught up in the hold-up with kids on their way to school, said: "Education is far more important than this right now.

"What are you teaching children to do, sit in the middle of the road, at your age? Come on, get up, move on. You've got no respect from me whatsoever."

And one man shouted: "We need insulating from you."

It follows more than a week of motorway demonstrations, sparking four-hour delays.
