Kent's Sikh Community comes to the Aid of Truckers

A group of Sikh volunteers in Kent have come to the aid of stranded lorry drivers by producing hundreds of meals for them.

Hundreds of truckers have been left trapped because of the closure at Dover port.

France had announced a UK travel ban due to concerns over the more infectious strain of Coronavirus. As a result, truckers are stuck waiting and unsure of what is going to happen.

With no immediate end to the crisis in sight, Kent's Sikh community decided to offer free hot meals to the stranded drivers.

Sikhs from Guru Nanak Darbar, a gurdwara in Gravesend, helped cook over 800 meals.
