Security Alert At Dover

Two men have been arrested after a security alert closed the Port of Dover for two hours during thursday evening's rush hour.

It was sparked by the discovery of military weapons in a car and a lorry at the Port's Eastern Docks just before 5pm.

Police set up a 200m safety cordon around the port and ferries heading for Kent were held in the Channel. An army bomb disposal team were also drafted in to examine the weapons and other military collectors' items.

All the items, which are believed to have been headed for a military show, wee declared safe and the docks were reopened at around 7pm.

Two men, who are not believed to be British, were detained and questioned on suspicion of offences believed to fall under the Landmines Act 1998.

The alert caused major disruption on roads leading to the port, including the A2 and the A20.

Four separate agencies were involved in the alert.
