A motorway service station has reopened after being forced to close due to an electrical fault.
Maidstone Services, off the M20 at junction 8, was shut for nearly two-and-a-half hours.
It happened at 4pm and did not reopen until around 6.25pm.
The service station has shops and restaurants on site including Costa, WHSmith, McDonald's, Cotton Traders and Chozen Noodle.
There is also an ESSO petrol station and Days Inn hotel.
A spokeswoman for Roadchef earlier said: “Maidstone motorway service area is currently closed due to an electrical fault.
"We are working to re-open the area as soon as possible."
