THE Channel Tunnel has been thrown into chaos after hundreds of migrants broke down fences and stormed in during a “massive invasion”.
Eurotunnel services between Folkestone and Calais are affected in both directions – with passengers facing delays of up to six hours.
Officials believe the “large and co-ordinated” group planned the intrusion before attempting to reach Britain at around 12.30am on Saturday.
A Eurotunnel sokesman said: “It’s a massive invasion and intrusion by a very large and co-ordinated group of migrants.
“They are being gathered up by the police authorities.”
He added: “It’s clearly an organised attack when it comes in such a large number, there are over 100 in this one group.
