Frustrated motorists facing days of misery after getting stuck in miles of gridlocked traffic near Dover have questioned whether the chaos was caused by the French authorities punishing Britain for leaving the EU.
The mayhem has left 250,000 drivers stranded in 'horrendous' 10-hour queues after the French border force imposed thorough security checks in the wake of the terror attack in Nice last week.
Many holidaymakers were forced to sleep in their vehicles overnight and worried Brits have posted their fears online that this is punishment for the referendum vote on June 23.
Police have warned the disruption on the roads - with cars remaining stationary as tailbacks stretch for 12 miles - is likely to last for a further two days.
Social media users on Twitter have questioned whether the turmoil in Kent is a 'Brexit hate crime' while others have suggested the French authorities are giving Brits a 'hard time' by 'making it awkward' following the referendum.
