Dashcam footage shows two people walking on the M20 motorway near Ashford

Motorist Lara Chandler said she was "gobsmacked" by what happened as she drove to work in Folkestone between Junction 9 and 10 of the motorway, shortly after 10am.

The 38-year-old said: "People in front started slowing down and putting their hazard lights on, I thought it was an accident.

"Then everyone started to move again, and just out of the corner of my eye I saw cars swerving and trying to get into the middle lane.

"This woman was just walking towards my car. I was down to about 5mph, I was boxed in.

"She got no reaction from me and did it to the person behind me. It's just so bizarre."
