Asylum seeker who kayaked to Britain faces rape inquiry

A migrant who paddled across the Channel in an inflatable kayak is to be questioned by immigration officials over the alleged rape of a British charity worker in the Calais Jungle camp.

The attack – apparently common knowledge among volunteers – is said to have happened around eight months ago. But the woman never reported it to French police because of fears that her allegation might ‘stigmatise’ refugees.
