'Migrants' riot in Calais

CALAIS AT WAR: Port road SHUT as migrants chanting 'f*** the UK' hurl rocks at Brit cars

HUNDREDS of migrants shouting "f*** the UK" have stormed the roads in and around Calais and hurled rocks at British motorists in a desperate attempt to reach the UK before Britons decide whether or not to leave the EU.

By NICK GUTTERIDGE
PUBLISHED: 15:57, Mon, Jun 20, 2016 | UPDATED: 20:03, Mon, Jun 20, 2016



French police battled around 300 migrants in the lawless port town this afternoon after huge mobs targeted England and Wales fans returning across the Channel after cheering on their teams at Euro 2016 and motoring enthusiasts driving back from the Le Mans rally event.

Gangs of migrants ran out onto the motorway and brought traffic to a standstill outside the port, so that they could break into lorries and stow away in an attempt to sneak across the Channel.

A British football fan caught up in the chaos reported that gangs of migrants were shouting "f*** the UK" as they hurled rocks at his car, posting photos on social media of clouds of tear gas fired by embattled police.

One UK motorist warned on social media that cars were being "stoned" by migrants as they sat stationary in traffic, warning others to stay away from the town.

Others claimed that the port had been "shut" by the authorities due to the chaos with "miles of stationary traffic" snaking back through the town, with one tweetlng: "UK Border control Calais side has stopped, we are all sat here waiting for cars to start flowing through? No toilets and water."

Another added: "Migrants chucking stones at cars at Calais. All major routes are shut."

Chaos erupted at around 3pm French time when the hundreds of migrants made an organised raid on the motorway linking the town to the port, which was closed by authorities for more than four hours, sparking traffic mayhem. It finally reopened at around 7pm after being left strewn with debris.

Calais newspaper La Void du Nord reported that gangs of migrants from the nearby Jungle camp attacked the ring road in waves, with police putting up barriers and firing tear gas grenades in a bid to hold them back.

The orchestrated raid is being viewed as particularly brazen by the authorities, who observed that migrants usually attempted to board lorries under the cover of darkness.

It is thought the criminal gang lords who run the migrant smuggling operation in Calais have deliberately timed the mass attempt to reach Britain to coincide with traffic returning from Euro 2016 and the Le Mans 42-hour rally event.

Police in Calais reported that several officers were injured during clashes with migrants while a number of people have been arrested, including two militants from the ultra left-wing anarchist group No Borders, for throwing stones.

The chaos comes just three days before Britain votes on whether or not to leave the EU, with some migrants fearing border controls could be beefed up immediately in the event of a Brexit.



A Calais police spokesman told TV channel France 3: "Police personnel have been deployed in numbers and had to use tear gas to evict migrants from the roadway. At the same time controls have been strengthened all across the port of Calais.”

Meanwhile UKIP's defence spokesman Mike Hookem told Express.co.uk the situation showed "that immigration and the EU are inextricably linked".

He said: "Economic migrants congregating in Calais know that if Britain votes to leave the EU we can take control of our borders. That is why they are so desperate to get to the UK should we vote to save our country on Thursday.

"Both the Tories and Labour remainers have admitted that if we stay in the EU we can say goodbye to any chance of taking back control of our own country."

It's been stuck at #Calais for 12hrs. I've watched migrants throw bricks at cars, dive into water by Ferries & run into @LeShuttle. Chaos.

@Peston @itvnews if there are riots where UK residents travel should it not be reported #calais #EUreferendum #Biased ? @Daily_Express


I guess the 'migrants' didn't get the memo from Dave to behave themselves till Friday.

Witnesses said that migrants blocked traffic on the way to the port so they could break into lorries in a desperate bid to reach Britain

Yup. And our tabloids are full of pics of rioting 'migrants' wrecking Calais while shouting 'F*ck the UK'. Maybe if someone played Ode to Joy to them......?
