‘Great Wall of Calais’ farce: Barrier costs UK £2.3m and is fitted with unlocked doors

A HUGE wall meant to stop migrants hiding in UK-bound lorries at Calais has been fitted with unlocked doors.

The 13ft barrier, dubbed The Great Wall of Calais, was built using £2.3million of UK taxpayers’ money.

It runs for well over half a mile beside the N216 motorway, which ends at the town’s ferry port terminal.

But a probe has found that steel doors set into it as access points for French officials are a glaring weak point.
