It is unclear whether the guns were being smuggled into the UK or intended to be used in an attack on the ferry.

Police are now checking CCTV footage to identify who hid them.

A Port of Dover source said: “The guns were loaded and caused a great deal of concern when they were found.

“It is something that needs to be taken seriously with the terror threat level at severe.”
