Jungle of tards……
I came to The Jungle looking for good. But I was tear-gassed and my photographer was beaten and robbed by a mob: KATIE HOPKINS experiences first-hand the terror of the Calais camp
Katie Hopkins was caught up in violent scenes just hours after arriving at the Jungle migrant camp near the Port of Calais. Migrants who had stormed the metal fence can be seen fleeing the area as police fire tear gas canisters to disperse the crowd
As migrants stormed the perimeter fence at the notorious Calais Jungle camp this afternoon, police surrounded the desperate mob and fired tear gas at MailOnline columnist Katie Hopkins.
In the violent scenes that followed, MailOnline photographer Roland Hoskins was attacked by migrants and subjected to a vicious assault. Here is her story.
Taki! Taki! Truck Truck! The cries went up, men shouting, running towards us. Hundreds of men, young men, running, running, towards the security fence that keeps the migrants penned inside the Jungle camp at Calais.
The lorries at the port were backed up, one after the other. The truckers’ least favourite position as targets, sitting ducks – vulnerable to attack.
Hundreds massed at the line of fences. Pulling at them, ripping at metal, desperate to get a head start on the police with their tear gas, dogs and guns.
