  • Calais Van driver killed in crash caused by migrants motorway road block

The man died instantly as his Polish-registered Renault Master burst into flames on the A16 motorway.

At just before 4am on Tuesday, two trucks were forced to suddenly brake so as to avoid the tree trunks placed by migrants to block the road.

Local media reports the death of the driver is the first at Calais caused by the actions of migrants determined to break into Britain.

"The driver of a van registered in Poland died".

Nine Eritrean refugees were found stowed in one of the lorries and were arrested, according to the Prefecture du Pas-de-Calais. However, Reuters reported that "large numbers" of migrants have returned to the area. The situation for our members improved after the Jungle camp was cleared at the end of a year ago but we have had reports that problems are returning to the area.

Between 300 and 600 immigrants are now believed to sleep rough in Calais. In one case a driver was almost killed when a wooden stake was hurled through his cab window, as his truck was "mobbed".

For years Calais has been a launching pad for migrants from the Middle East and Africa trying to reach Britain illegally.

The FTA had warned French authorities that fatalies could occur if the migrant problem wasn't resolved, it claimed.

The letter hails the work of "charities" and NGOs, who have been accused of luring migrants back to the French port town from which they are banned with food, water, and sleeping bags.

Mr Yarsley said: "Driver safety is paramount and the French government needs to step up patrols on the major routes and move on migrants who are camped at the side of the road".

"No government will ever succeed, by any measure including death, hunger and repression, in preventing people from moving to where life is softer and more sweet", the letter tells Macron.
