French Police Fire Tear Gas As Calais Migrants Attempt To Reach Britain

 

 

Hundreds of enraged migrants caused chaos in Calais as they tried to board ferries to the UK in a violent rampage. Police had to use tear gas on the 300-strong mob yesterday as they threw stones and attempted to board lorries.

French authorities were forced to seal off the port as police erected barriers to contain the ferocious crowd. Thousands of migrants fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and Asia have converged on Calais over the past year, hoping to find a way of getting across the Channel to Britain.
