Britain’s borders trampled underfoot: Calls to send in the Army as hundreds of migrants storm fences around Calais Channel Tunnel entrance for THIRD night running – desperate to clamber on trains bound for Kent, whatever the cost
Hundreds of migrants laid siege to the Channel Tunnel for the third night running last night, as they stormed fences (pictured) and desperately tried to clamber on trains bound for Kent. Senior MPs, backed by hauliers, said the British Army should be sent in to restore order because the French authorities had ‘lost control’ as the Calais illegal immigrant crisis escalated dramatically.
It comes as one migrant – a Sudanese man in his 20s or early 30s – slipped as he tried to get underneath a train inside the high-security zone surrounding the undersea link in the early hours of yesterday morning when 1,500 attempted to get across. On Monday night, more than 2,000 illegal immigrants tried to break through the Tunnel entrance, prompting an urgent security review which saw more than 120 police officers drafted in to secure the terminals.
