    Just makes you wonder the adgenda of this latest organised group .also the clips you see on the various news channels of the "refugees" most dressed ,looking like they have just come from Marx & Sparks ,followed by comments that they have been on the move for hundreds of miles .
    Must be me I only have to go into town and back and look like I've been in same clothes for a week

    Just saying :whistle:

    "A Eurotunnel spokesman described the latest incident as a "massive invasion and intrusion by a very large and co-ordinated group of migrants".

    He added: "They arrived together an in a well-organised manner, broke through the fences and all clearly knew where they were going."

    Easily solved.........Stop all trains and then put a huge fishing net over the holes our end. When its full, pick up net and throw in the sea!!!!! We can trial it out on those wonderful MP's that serve us so well.....!

    Thanks for the 'heads up' Helen, we were meant to travel on the Tunnel this morning
    Have been able to get a space on P&O ferries - though I'm sure many will miss out on traveling today as it says on their website that space is VERY limited

    Glad we have just returned on the ferry from Dunkirk. Thought we might have saw some immigrants there but we never.

    It is easily solved ! Don't stop the trains.Just treat the casualties the same as other debris & clear as & when necessary.
    You never see them at Dunkirk.

    Running with delays again from 7 this morning, hope to be back to near normal by 10.. Can't see that personally

    I do wish that some of you with hateful opinions would keep them to yourself and not use informative threads like this as an excuse for disgraceful banter...

    Where did you see that Eddie?
    On the tunnel website earlier it said that anyone with bookings this morning should re book as there were going to be severe delays once the trains start running again

    I just checked their website again just now and its saying that they are clearing the backlog and you should check in as normal - I wish they'd make their minds up cos I just wasted £128 on a Ferry ticket I don't need :cry:
