Angry drivers have expressed their frustrations after being stuck in M20 traffic for hours.
The M20 Londonbound has been closed since this morning (May 22) after a lorry caught fire on the motorway.
The coastbound road was also closed for a time but has since opened up.
However some drivers have been stuck on the opposite side of the road for several hours now.

The lorry fire has been put out, but motorists remain stranded while emergency services work to clear the road.
Highways England has said that it is working to release the stuck traffic, but many drivers are still trapped on the motorway.
Stranded motorists have been getting in touch with KentLive to express their anger and frustration at the situation.
One reader told us: "The road and warnings should have been in place long before they were.
"We have been here for over two hours. I have two over 90s in the car. Told not likely to clear before 4.30pm.
"Over five hours of no access to food or water, no clear updates, disgusting. I am watching mother trying to placate babies. I am disabled not able to get out of the car."
The reader called for "heads on a plate" after their ordeal, adding "We could have avoided this completely if the warnings had been in place in a timely manner."
Another said they had been stuck for "over three hours now", writing: "It's disgraceful that in this age they have not removed vehicles that are stuck."
One driver who had a ferry to catch in Dover told us they had been stuck since 10.50am.
The motorist said: "As of 1.20pm and we're still not moving, have to hold the ferries in Calais if goes on much longer."
Another reader also said they had been stuck since 10.50am, adding: "No sign of moving any time soon."
