Things just go from bad to worse at Calais. Drivers are now routinely being attacked and threatened by migrants desperate to cross the Channel. And some of the truckers are fighting back, either swerving their vehicles at migrants looking to jump on board, getting involved in physical confrontations with them, or – and this is perhaps the cruellest of the lot – promising to take them to the UK, only to drop them off elsewhere in continental Europe while the migrants wander out of the depot in the belief they have finally reach the UK. Something is going to break here, or things will have to change – and it will be the former which precipitates the latter.
