Muslim "immigrant" invasion from France cause UK to shut down Channel Tunnel
TRAFFIC THROUGH THE Channel Tunnel connecting Britain and France was suspended early this morning after around 100 migrants entered the French side of the tunnel complex, the company operating it said in a statement.
“At around 12:30 am, around 100 migrants forced a closure and the entry of security agents into the tunnel,” a Eurotunnel spokeswoman told AFP.
She said police were at the site and that traffic remained suspended.
Ten people, including seven migrants, suffered minor injuries in the storming of the tunnel, a firefighter at the scene said.
The interior ministers of France and Britain in August signed an agreement to set up a new “command and control centre” to tackle smuggling gangs in Calais, as Europe grapples with its biggest migration crisis since World War II.
