A van driver was killed on a motorway near Calais on Monday night after crashing into a truck that had been blocked by a makeshift barricade set up by migrants hoping to jump aboard.
Haulage groups had long warned about the dangers to drivers caused by migrants placing obstacles in the road in a bid to slow lorries so they can jump aboard in the hope of making it to UK.
Their fears that one day a driver would be killed in an accident were realized on Monday night when the driver of a Polish registered van died after crashing into an HGV that had been forced to stop because tree trunks had been placed across the road.
The accident happened on the A16 motorway at Guemps, 15 km from Calais.
The driver’s truck reportedly burst into flames on impact.
“The van hit one of three HGVs blocked by the barricade and burst into flames,” a statement from the local authorities read.
Nine migrants of Eritrean origin were arrested at the scene after being pulled out of one of three lorries that had been blocked by the barricade.
The driver’s death is the first of its kind despite the hazardous make shift road blocks being a feature of the migrant crisis in Calais since it began in 2014.
The barricades, mainly erected at night were a regular hazard for drivers during the height of the migrant crisis in the summer of 2015.
Pseudorefugees are back at Calais! Niggers, ragheads, and naive do-gooders of Calais jungle raise hell. People-smugglers are going to extreme lengths to get migrants in Calais across the Channel to Kent. Placing debris on motorways to stop vehicles and then ambush them is a familiar tactic used in Calais. Truck drivers are threatened with chainsaws and lorries are smashed and set on fire. Migrants wielding bats and knives smash up vehicles on roads near the town as their owners sat in traffic.
The naive do-gooders of Jungle are not so naive after all. They are there for free sex and orgies! Volunteers in the Calais Jungle have been sexually exploiting refugees and even child migrants. The Calais Jungle is now a free brothel, a magnet of pedophiles! Any man or woman can come in and rape a child! Sex tourism galore! Sex-deprived Brits come to Jungle for orgies, pretending they are volunteers!
Migrants have become increasing audacious and violent in their attempts to enter the UK illegally. Some roads are now a no-go zone between midnight and 6am. The situation at the Jungle has become uncontrollable as police numbers drop and migrant numbers rise.
We know from the drama in Calais that mobs of fighting age men are staking their claim to economic betterment while the liberal left continue to grant them refugee or asylum status before the fact. They are braying jackals, thieves, and muggers – those willing to flout the law in their search for freebies in Britain. And even then, they’ll probably complain about their complimentary meals, provided courtesy of the British tax payer.
Look back to recent pronouncements, admissions even, made by charities in Calais. Clothes and food are being dumped and burnt by the migrants in Calais. They have enough food, they have enough clothes and we have seen clothes everywhere thrown.
The fact is the British people are being played for mugs again, and the pro-migrant, disaster tourism brigades who stoke up tensions in Calais drip feed news stories into the media. Mass migration and open borders is a bumper industry. The British government is spending tax payer money funding these groups who attack the tax payer and indeed the British government.
At Calais, you will meet niggers and ragheads who destroyed their papers and refuse to be fingerprinted. Most of them are middle class and economic migrants and admit they are not refugees. They just want Brits to provide housing, welfare, and free access to the British NHS. But if you are honest about your status then you would have claimed asylum in the first country you arrived in.
Human feces were found in Coke cans in bottling plants. The night shift at a Coca-Cola plant was disrupted when a container of cans clogged up the machines, only for workers to discover a number were filled with human waste! It was absolutely horrible, and the machines had to be turned off for about 15 hours to be cleaned.
Some migrants have made that long journey in the lorry and in their desperation were forced to use the cans instead of a toilet. Cans arrive at factories without tops on, to be filled with the fizzy drink before they are sealed and sold.
Back then UK’s Road Haulage Association chief Richard Burnett called for France to send the army in to protect its drivers.
‘The UK and French governments must acknowledge their responsibilities to all Port of Calais users, move in and act. If this means deployment of the armed forces then so be it,’ he said at the time.
The British government agreed to pay to build a 13-feet high, one kilometre-long wall along the main motorway into Calais to prevent migrants from encroaching on the road. But many suggested the wall would just move the problem elsewhere.
French authorities also responded to the crisis by closing the sprawling Jungle migrant camp, that at one point was home to almost 10,000 refugees. Since the closure last October the problems eased somewhat.
However there are reports that the roadblocks are emerging again in a sign that more and more migrants are returning to the Calais region.
At the end of June some 20 migrants built a burning barricade on the A16 motorway at Marck, a few kilometres from the port.
Charities say there are now hundreds of migrants in the area around Calais and the numbers appear to be increasing as the warmer weather returns.
Charities have battled with local authorities, who have barred them from handing out meals to refugees.
That ruling was later overturned in court. Authorities have also ordered showers to be removed from the area.
On June 14th, France’s rights activist Jacques Toubon denounced the inhumane living conditions in Calais.
