BBC NEWS | England | Lorry fire closes Channel Tunnel

And this is why Operation Stack came into play

The operator Eurotunnel said it suspended rail services on Monday afternoon when a fire alarm went off.

Lorry drivers were taken off the train in the north-running tunnel. A fire was put out about 7.5 miles (12km) from Folkestone. No-one was hurt.

This is part of my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first moved to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I'd been a regular visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site used to be updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a handy reference for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a fake paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
