Raffaele Scarinzi, the mayor of Vitulano, ordered bags of sand to be dumped in the streets to block any new arrivals from coming to the town in southern Italy.
Vitulano currently has one SPRAR (System for the Protection of Refugees and Asylum Seekers) centre which houses 30 migrants.
But the mayor claimed there were not enough facilities set up to accommodate any more people and “too many” migrants arriving in the town.
