INVASION OF EUROPE: 150 Migrants (ILLEGALS) STORM Channel Tunnel in desperate bid to get into Britain

Security inside the undersea link was once more brought into question as traffic was disruption as some 150 mainly young men tried to get on board UK-bound freight trains just after 10.30pm local time.
"From 10:30pm, around 150 migrants attempted to enter the platforms," a Calais spokesman said.

Police confirmed: "Riot officers had to intervene to restore orde. Services were disrupted until the very early hours. There are attempts to get into the Tunnel pretty much every night, but this was one of the worse," the spokesman added.
A Eurotunnel spokesman added that it "suffers from attempted intrusions every night".
He said: "We have adapted our transport system to ensure the best level of security and keep our trains running."

The Eurotunnel passenger service was also suffering delays due to what it described only as an "incident on the terminal" at Folkestone, in Kent.
A statement on the firm's website said: "Our passenger service is currently operating with some timetable disruption, this is due to an incident on the terminal which is in the process of being resolved. There is a waiting time of approximately hours hours on the terminal."
"We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this will cause to your journey."
