Migrant turf war involving 100 sees violence explode at motorway site

A VICIOUS brawl broke out between more than a hundred Britain-bound migrants on Monday night leaving six people badly injured.

The fight between rival Eritrean and Sudanese gangs was reportedly sparked by an argument over a “strategically located piece of land” – which both sides tried to claim – that “quickly escalated out of control,” an anonymous police source told AFP.

The fight took place near a motorway rest area in Steenvoorde, a northern French town located some 25 miles from the Grande-Synthe migrant camp, which is home to thousands of undocumented migrants.
