Service across the Thames between Kent and Essex were on hold during Tuesday morning

The Tilbury Ferry between Gravesend and the port in Essex is back in operation after a power failure on the Kent side forced its closure during Tuesday morning’s rush hour.

It is understood shutters at the pier failed to open, thus preventing the site from being used.

Engineers have now fixed the problem and services are operating as normal.
