Muslim ‘refugees’ cause chaos in tunnel connecting UK and France by causing drivers to swerve off road, stealing vehicles, and rioting on Xmas day
- Footage shows car drivers forced to swerve around hundreds of migrants
- Police closed the A16 highway until crowds of people could be dispersed
- Calais port is a key destination for asylum-seekers from all over the world
- Most hope to reach the UK via the Eurotunnel or by hitching lifts in lorries
Astonishing footage from Calais has captured the moment hundreds of migrants stormed the streets in an attempt to break into the Eurotunnel on Christmas Day.
Car drivers were forced to squeeze through the crowds of people – many of whom were pushing prams – as they strolled down the middle of the road.
Local authorities admitted that ‘since the traffic was low’, it was decided to close the A16 highway in both directions until the crowds could be dispersed.
‘Around 4pm, hundreds of migrants, in small groups, attempted to break into the site,’ said the Pas-de-Calais prefecture.
The port of Calais has become a key destination for the thousands of migrants and refugees who are trying to enter the UK.
It has led to the evolution of the Calais migrant camp, known as The Jungle, which has become so well established that it is even now home to restaurants, barbershops, churches and mosques.
Its inhabitants have arrived from all over the world, including Syria, Eritrea and Afghanistan, most claiming to have fled violence and war in their home countries.
More than 6,000 people are now believed to have made temporary homes in the make-shift camp, including orphaned children, the elderly and disabled.
