Holidaymakers heading to Dover continue to face hours of delays and have been tweeting their frustration.

For the last 15 hours I have been in traffic jams within 4 miles of Dover. This port is very badly and inefficiently managed.

The lengthy waits at the port have been brought on by terror fears, with French authorities heightening security checks in the wake of the recent terror attacks in the country.
But a lot of people on social media are absolutely convinced the real reason is the French giving us a test run of what life will be like post-Brexit. Hmm.
Huge queues at Dover, France giving UK a hard time over brexit?

Suspect the French are giving Dover a taste of what #Brexit might mean. (When free movement goes).

Brexit voters held up by French customs at Dover: think of it as a preview. #Dover

Things are getting a bit dramatic.
huge queues at Dover - is this French Brexit payback? What would be effect on GDP of France if British tourists boycott country? #dover

But others can see sense.
Getting cross reading social media. Really stupid comments around about the delays at the port of Dover and Brexit...#ignorance

*continues whispering* Maybe, just maybe, it has more to do with the French state of emergency? #noteverythingisaboutus

Perhaps sitting in a stuffy car for hours on end has made some people a bit delusional.
