More mayhem in Calais

[ December 17, 2015   //   ]

Freight Transport Association Ireland (FTAI) released photographs of a truck damaged by stone-throwing migrants in Calais. The windscreen of the Virginia International Logistics lorry was cracked in two places in the attack.

FTAI general manager, Neil McDonnell, said: “We understand the terrible conditions under which migrants and asylum seekers are living in Calais. However, nothing excuses violent conduct against freight drivers. If this behaviour continues, it is only a matter of time until a confrontation between immigrants and drivers results in serious injury, or worse.”
