The protest on Saturday came as British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn visited the region, which is temporary home to about 4,000 migrants camped out in hopes of finding a better life in Britain, across the Channel. 


Long lines of cars and lorries are now building up outside the port and the incident has led to fears of travel chaos ahead of planned closures to the Eurotunnel from 9pm tonight.


The tunnel is shutting so an overnight safety exercise can take place and all services will be suspended, with the last UK departure at 9.20pm and the first departure leaving the UK at be 6.20am tomorrow and from France at 7.20am. 


The Mayor of Calais Natacha Bouchart closed the port and said around 50 migrants made their way on to the P&O-operated vessel. Police are at the scene and water canons have been used on board the ship to try to get the group to leave.


Meanwhile, a statement tweeted by P&O said: 'The Port of Calais is resolving a security incident. As a result our vessels are subject to delay of between 90 and 120 minutes.'


In a video filmed by a bystander, crowds can be heard cheering as migrants try to force their way through the fence.

There is no end to this invasion. Soon it will be this way in the U.S. but they won't have migrant camps, they'll give them housing, money, food and medical care all the while catering to their 5x a day prayer needs. ugh

Not one person in authority has a solution?

That's because they are simply drones following orders 'from above'.  Idiots.  They are directly responsible for the desctruction of their own countries.
