    "Carnage in Calais: Horrific crash as jungle migrant gangs target tourists in cars in terrifying new AMBUSH technique that left our journalists covered in blood after narrowly escaping death
    • Ruthless gangs deliberately causing crashes on the roads to the French port by hurling large objects at cars
    • Home Secretary Amber Rudd has spoken out after a team of journalists narrowly escaped death last week
    • Reporter Ben Ellery and photographers Steve Burton and John McLellan were all injured
    • They had been investigating a shocking explosion of violence at the squalid migrant camp
    Migrants from the Calais Jungle camp are using a deadly new tactic in their attempts to get to Britain.

    Ruthless gangs are deliberately causing crashes on the roads to the French port by hurling large objects at cars – then sneaking on to lorries caught up in the resulting tailbacks.

    Home Secretary Amber Rudd has spoken out after a team of Mail on Sunday journalists narrowly escaped death last week when three migrants threw a log at their car, forcing it into the path of a 38-ton juggernaut.

    After being briefed about the incident, Ms Rudd issued a statement describing the development as 'extremely concerning'.

    She added: 'It's vital that people feel safe when using the Channel ports. This shows just how it is in all our interests to combat attempts to enter the UK illegally.'

    Reporter Ben Ellery, 32, and photographers Steve Burton and John McLellan were all injured when their British-registered Audi swerved to avoid the missile.

    They then hit the lorry, sending their vehicle spinning out of control. The juggernaut dragged the car sideways for about 50 yards.

    The three men were later rushed to hospital for treatment. Ellery's head was gashed to the bone after it struck the steering wheel, and he required eight stitches.

    McLellan, 60, was left with deep cuts to his face, and Burton, 57, suffered a gash on his head and severe bruising to his back.

    They had been investigating a shocking explosion of violence at the squalid migrant camp and the growing number of attacks on trucks heading for Britain.

    This sinister escalation risks the lives of thousands of British families using ferries and the Channel Tunnel as they return from their summer holidays. And it comes ahead of planned 'go slow' protest by French truckers tomorrow that is likely to cause chaos for returning tourists.

    French interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve has pledged to close the camp – where numbers have swelled by 3,000 to more than 9,000 – by the end of the year, but local residents want him to speed up the process. An extra 200 police officers have been dispatched to the area and uniformed French troops have also started patrolling.

    A Calais police source told The Mail on Sunday there had been a number of reported incidents 'of projectiles being thrown directly at cars, so as to force them to stop'.

    He said the menacing new tactic – along with blockades on the road –'was of huge concern, and was likely to result in very serious accidents'.

    French officials and hospital staff confirmed that migrants are deliberately causing accidents to create traffic tailbacks on the N216 motorway into the ferry port, and the A16 to the Channel Tunnel. They are also putting up barricades.

    Quentin Patte, an emergency doctor at Calais Hospital, told The Mail on Sunday: 'Targeting motorists in order to cause accidents is a new tactic. A colleague treated someone recently who was injured when a migrant threw something at their vehicle near the port.'

    Another doctor at the hospital revealed asylum-seekers come into the hospital daily after being wounded in vicious knife fights in the camp.

    He said: 'They come in every day with stab wounds. There is particularly a rivalry between the Afghans and the Sudanese. They are given priority because their wounds are so serious.'

    A paramedic told our reporters: 'This is happening all the time now. It's a war out there.'

    Lorry drivers are experiencing soaring violence, threats and intimidation as they pass through the French port, according to locals.

    Every night, squads of French riot police are involved in running battles with gangs. The police fire tear gas as they chase them from the edge of the main roads.

    Police say they are dealing with around 30 blockades each night.

    A team of highway workers toils through the night constantly clearing debris from the motorways around the port and tunnel.

    Jean-Marc Puissesseau, president of the port of Calais, said: 'Migrants are throwing tree trunks, branches and shopping carts at cars on the motorway. It is very dangerous.'

    David Sagnard, president of the local branch of France's national federation of lorry drivers, said: 'The violence of the migrants has not gone up by a notch, but by ten.

    'Why do we have to risk our lives on the motorway just doing our job, or simply because we're tourists? It is not acceptable.'

    A two-mile-long, £2.5 million fence – paid for by British taxpayers – was erected in Calais last year to stop migrants jumping into the back of lorries while they were queuing to cross the Channel. Now the migrants, mainly young men from Sudan, Ethiopia and Afghanistan, are targeting vehicles on the motorway two miles away, at the point where the fence ends.

    Our reporting team was investigating the worrying phenomenon when they came under attack in the early hours of Friday on the N216.

    Half an hour earlier they saw police clearing metal crowd-control barriers which had been strewn across the A16.

    The night before, the team filmed three migrants as they brazenly tried to board a lorry that had stopped on the motorway because tree branches had been dragged across the carriageway.

    One migrant attempted to climb into the gap between the cab and the trailer of the lorry as two of his friends looked on, hoping he could smuggle himself into the UK.

    The shocked driver sounded his horn before deciding to drive over the branches to get away from the men, who fled into the woods when police arrived.

    Regional highways boss Xavier Delebarre said: 'The gangs have tools including chainsaws. There is a strategy to their concerted, simultaneous assaults.'

    He said it amounted to a sinister 'game' and described how workers have come across a number of dead bodies of migrants who had been hit by lorries after they had run into the road.

    Frederic Houtecoeur, a lorry driver from Belgium, said: 'Every night we are coming up against migrants and our lives are put at risk. It is extremely dangerous.'

    Currently a record 1,900 French police are deployed in Calais. But Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affairs Committee, last night called for British police to be sent to France to help deal with the violence.

    He said: 'This is becoming a war zone with wanton violence being perpetrated against drivers. It is totally unacceptable that the situation has reached crisis point.'

    " 'They surrounded us, smacking the windows with bats': Top British horsewoman, 26, tells of her horror after gang of armed migrants attacked her horsebox in Calais leaving her parents covered in blood
    • Lucy Phillips struck trouble returning from world championship event
    • Phillips, 26, is ranked fifth in the world in the event of equestrian vaulting
    • Her route with parents to Calais ferry terminal was blocked by felled trees
    • 10 migrants jumped out and threatened them with bats and tree branches
    A leading British horsewoman has described the terrifying moment when her horsebox was attacked by a gang of armed migrants in Calais.

    Lucy Phillips, 26, of Solihull near Birmingham, was returning from a world championship equestrian event with her parents when their route to the ferry terminal was blocked by felled trees.

    Up to 10 migrants then jumped out of the bushes on the roadside and threatened them with bats and tree branches.

    Dressed head to toe in black, the young men started hitting the side of the horsebox and then smashed a passenger window.

    When Miss Phillips jumped into the back of the truck to calm her horse down, she heard the migrants trying to get in through the side door.

    The horsewoman, who represents Britain in equestrian vaulting, pulled the handle of the door towards her to stop the young men from getting inside.

    She told her father Bill, 68, to beep the horn, which he did until French riot police arrived.

    Her mother Liz, 63, suffered cuts to her face and her father received cuts to his arm.

    Miss Phillips was on her way back from representing Britain in equestrian vaulting, commonly described as gymnastics on horseback, in Le Mans when her horsebox was set upon at 1.30am.

    The rider, who also works as a model, decided to speak out to highlight the increase in violent attacks carried out by migrants living in The Jungle camp in Calais.

    She said: ‘It was so scary and it seems that over the past couple of months the violence has got worse.

    ‘It’s horrendous and beyond belief. It’s not just the big trucks they target, they don’t seem to care who they attack anymore.

    ‘I don’t want to scare people. But anyone going out there needs to be so careful on the way back. We’ve vowed never to travel back at night again.’

    Miss Phillips, who lives with her parents in Solihull near Birmingham, said she had previously seen migrants running alongside lorries heading to the port but ‘never blocking the road or being that violent’.

    Describing the attack, she said: ‘As we stopped, between seven and 10 men appeared out of the bushes.

    ‘They were carrying big pieces of wood and what looked like bats. They surrounded the lorry and started hitting the sides, and smacking the windows with their bats.’

    Miss Phillips, who is fifth in the equestrian vaulting world rankings, said she heard a smash when she was in the back of the cab with her 18-year-old horse Pitucelli.

    ‘My dad was blowing the horn, trying to get the police’s attention, then I heard a smash,’ she said.

    ‘They’d put a branch through the passenger window of the cab and my mum and dad were covered in glass. Mum’s face was bleeding, so was Dad’s arm. It felt like forever until the police came.

    ‘It was really scary and completely dark. We had been told to beep your horn to get the police’s attention and the migrants were telling us keep quiet.’

    The French police ‘chased the migrants away’ and escorted the family away from the area.

    An officer then took statements from them after the incident, which took place on August 22.

    Drivers who regularly use the French port say migrants are resorting to increasingly desperate and hostile measures to get to the UK.

    Every night African and Asian migrants place blockades on the roads to slow lorries down so they can jump on board.

    They often threaten the drivers with chainsaws, knives and bats before breaking into their trucks.

    And last night the French army was called in to pull stowaways from lorries inside the ferry terminal at Calais."

    Never let a good deed go unpunished!
    Maybe the French have learned their lesson about taking in migrants.

    it's remarkable how weak the west is. they should round up those invaders and drop them off in syria or some other muslim paradise.

    or kill them all. either way, the west will be better off.

    They imported a bunch of barbarians from the 7th century. What could possibly go wrong? What were they thinking? Now they're a big part of French society but not a good part. Our politicians should take note, not that they will.

    Meanwhile, here in the good old U.S., Obama continues to take in hundreds of thousands refugees. His lapdog government controlled media keeps mum. Future innocent Americans will die horribly because of this. Hillary will continue his mad dream of fundamentally changing America into a Third World Nation.

    President Trump is starting to sound a lot better to ya'll know, huh?

    They should just napalm the area and be done with it. Fucking savages.
