MidiLibre/Scoop, Jun 18

There was a 4 km traffic jam on the A9 on Sunday afternoon, caused by a demonstration by the travelling community.

It was at the Montpellier-Fabrègues area, in the Béziers-Montpellier direction, when members of a travelling community led a demonstration which severely disrupted traffic for almost an hour.

The police intervened.

According to our information, the demonstrators had set up a filtering barrier, allowing vehicles to pass through only one lane. 

After a period of negotiation, traffic was eventually re-established shortly after 2:30 pm.

The demonstrators wanted to publicise the disappearance of 13-year-old Kimberley, who left the family home on Friday 16 June has not been seen since.

According to initial investigations, Kimberley Biau was last seen at the Polygon in Montpellier on Friday morning.

She was wearing black jeans, black sneakers and a striped navy sweatshirt. Blonde, she wears glasses and is about 1.60 m. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the police at Saint-Mathieu-de-Tréviers on 04 67 55 20 02.
