Channel Tunnel lorry drivers 'threatened with bars and knives'

Richard Burnett, chief executive of the Road Haulage Association, says the situation surrounding migrants trying to get to the UK through the Channel Tunnel is getting worse.

On Tuesday night at least 1,500 people attempted to access the tunnel in Calais.

Mr Burnett said "Lorry drivers have complained of 10-20 migrants surrounding their trucks, threatening them, taunting them, using bars and knives to bang on the sides of vehicles to threaten them and make them feel vulnerable."
