French Police 'let illegal migrants go' at Calais

French Police have launched an investigation after footage obtained by South East Today appears to show officers discovering migrants aboard a lorry in Calais and then allowing them to run away.

The incident, filmed by a British driver, has prompted anger from the Dover MP Charlie Elphicke, who said the authorities in France are not doing enough to stop migrants boarding lorries bound for Kent.

Simon Jones reports.
