‘Open the border – we’re going to the UK!’ Dramatic moment that a mob of 200 desperate immigrants tore down fences in Calais and stormed Channel Tunnel
The trouble began in the early hours of Sunday when 200 migrants were yards from entering the Channel Tunnel on foot after storming down barricades. They ran towards the fences (top right), smashing and tearing down the flimsy barriers as they went (left). They were only held back by tear gas. But rather than flee completely, many began to build camp fires near the tunnel entrance to keep warm.
Others regrouped to form a human barricade (bottom right), blocking the road to the tunnel. Migrants were heard chanting: ‘Why do you kill us? Why did you kill my sister? We are coming to save our lives. Why do we live inside the Jungle? Where are the rights of immigrants?’ The chaotic scene, witnessed by the Mail, came as police admitted that yesterday’s attempts to enter Britain were more ‘orchestrated’ than previously. They estimated 400 migrants had tried to enter this country that night.
