German locals demand barrier taller than the BERLIN WALL be built for protection against illegal alien invaders

GERMAN authorities have built a wall higher than the one that divided Berlin in the Cold War to separate migrants from locals.

Residents in Munich have been enraged by plans for a migrant shelter for teenagers in their neighbourhood, with seven locals taking local authorities to court over the proposal.

The wall will be built in the Neuperlach district in the south of the city where authorities say it will protect the residents from the migrant inhabitants and, at four meters, will be higher than the Berlin Wall.

But authorities have got cold feet over the barrier, with some officials saying it was larger than they had planned.
