    How is the route Dover to Dunkirk, does anyone know? Are the Migrants there too? I feel they may only be concentrating on Calais as the tunnel is there.

    We came to Dunkirk. No problem at all. Easier than calais anyway. They want to go to the uk. Not away from it.

    I used Dunkirk to return home last month. There was congestion due to the amount of stranded trucks but the police waved passenger vehicles around them. As far as I could see there were no migrants there. The authorities at Dunkirk checked every motorhome passing through the port. They checked inside and outside of the vehicle including under the bed, toilet/shower etc).

    Just got back from the Caen Ferry. Parked in a side street till 11pm as the aire is packed and not very nice. At 11 we moved onto the ferry port itself to wildcamp. Was amazed at the lack of obvious security. Gates were left open beyond the check-in and a couple of tuggers drove in and settled down for the night as well as numerous trucks. I walked through and could have hidden anywhere overnight. In the morning very cursory checks were offered. When we got back to Portsmouth it was far better with Border Patrol entering motorhomes, caravans etc to check. I did think if I was a potential illegal I would try one of the quieter ports to get to the UK rather than face the heavy Police prescence in Calais?
