2,000 migrants storm the Channel Tunnel in a bid to reach Britain as riot police battle for six hours in a desperate attempt to keep them out

At least 2200 illegal migrants tried to storm the Channel Tunnel in a bid to reach Britain from France, it has been revealed.

In one of the worst security breaches in the history of the undersea link, huge gangs broke through security fencing in Calais in the early hours.

‘It was absolute pandemonium,’ said a French police source. ‘They were pouring in through holes in the fencing and clinging on to Eurotunnel trains.

    couldn’t they have just sent trains from the Britain side on all tracks? wouldn’t that have taken care of the problem?

    But Michael Coren on his twit page says England should let them all in. In fact he has a number of twitters about it. How can he be wrong?

      I used to like Michael Coren, then he got lobotomized, or something.

        Perhaps he only played a “conservative” on TV?

          Like Troy McClure.

    • Boy oh boy.

    The army exists to keep out foreign invaders. Some barbed wire and a few GPMGs should be enough to do the job.

    That is what machineguns are for.

    It’s too bad there is no way to contain them. If only there were an ocean on top and concrete walls on the side …….

    The west needs to abolish all generous social assistance programs to non citizens and they will stop coming in mass. Welfare funds terrorism and slowly decays a society from within.

    Either they have no water cannons or do not know how to use them. They would at the same time clean all the dust and dirt off the trains.

  • disqus_W6sf

    Pay them to leave and if they come back imprison them Or something like that. There is no best practice for this sort of thing….follow the Israelis and see how their experiment works
