A motorway was temporarily shut after a car was allegedly spotted driving the wrong way along the hard shoulder.
Police intercepted the red Peugeot, which had a foreign number plate, on the M20 between junctions 11 and 11a as it headed towards the Channel Tunnel.
Witnesses said a passing patrol car pulled over and reversed at high speed up the hard shoulder, near the Folkestone Services slip road, to catch up with the vehicle.
An elderly couple were spotted getting out of the car.
A police spokesman said: "A rolling road block was used to control the traffic and enable the vehicle to be turned in the right direction and taken off at Junction 11a."
Traffic was delayed for around 13 minutes.
It is not yet known if any action has been taken against the driver.
The incident happened at 10.40am on Friday, but the details have only just come to light.
