Chaos as HUNDREDS of migrants storm Channel Tunnel in ‘massive planned invasion’

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.
