Staff working at the testing centre have warned of a number of concerning incidents involving drugs and forged papers. 

According to a report in KentOnline, one worker told how there had been sexual encounters between staff members as well as reports of employees taking and offering cannabis and cocaine.

‘There’s lots of young people working here and it’s very cliquey,’ the anonymous staff member told the publication.

‘People treat it like a social event. Some are on furlough or looking for other jobs so they don’t really care about this job.

‘You’ll see them rolling joints, and someone was caught twice with cocaine and the police were called.’ 

A letter sent to staff by security contractor Rightguard and leaked to KentOnline mentioned a ‘number of incidents and allegations’ including ‘reports of staff taking and offering drugs to others whilst on shift’. 

The site was established just before Christmas as a new variant of the coronavirus was discovered and France refused entry to anyone without a negative test, leaving thousands of hauliers stranded.

The letter continued: ‘Information has been given to senior managers regarding sexual encounters that are taking place on the site during the night shift.’ 

According to the letter, some of the hauliers had also been forging documentation saying they had had a negative Covid test.  

A spokesman for the Department for Transport said: ‘These reports are concerning and we’re investigating with the company that manages the site as a matter of urgency.’
