Calls for military to guard port of Calais

Lorry drivers are renewing calls for the military to guard the port of Calais.

It is after further disruption to services last night when dozens of migrants stormed a ferry there.

Richard Burnett is chief executive of the British Road Haulage Association.

He wants French authorities to step up security until solutions to the migration crisis are found.

“This situation can’t continue, we need to make sure that there is a short term solution to protect drivers while this is resolved globally.”
