Another 1,500 migrants – including one who was crushed to death by a lorry – stormed the Channel Tunnel in Calais overnight in the latest desperate attempt to reach Britain.
The dead migrant, a Sudanese man in his 20s or early 30s, slipped as he tried to get underneath a train inside the high-security zone surrounding the undersea link.
He was hit by a lorry which was preparing to drive on to the train and is thought to have died instantly, according to a police source in Calais who said hundreds of officers were involved in a second night of massive intrusions.
It comes after 2,200 migrants tried to gain entry to Eurotunnel’s French terminal on Monday, causing chaos for holidaymakers and freight traffic on both sides of the Channel.
France has sent in an extra 120 extra police to secure the terminals as Eurotunnel revealed it had now blocked more than 37,000 such attempts since January.
The escalating crisis has led to calls for the army to be drafted in to help search vehicles coming into Britain for stowaways.

It is no use David Cameron saying ‘We are doing our best’. He has got to succeed in doing what is necessary. This includes putting pressure on the French government: to step up security around the entrance to the Eurotunnel; to take trespassing immigrants into custody; and to deport them to their country of ethnic origin or point of last departure.
The army should be employed to protect our borders against this invasion of criminal immigrants wanting to take our jobs, housing and benefits.
It’s good to see that others are now following Patria’s lead in calling for the army to guard our borders. Where Patria leads others follow.
