Drivers warned over migrants exploiting Calais chaos

The government has asked drivers at Calais to be extra vigilant as migrants look to exploit the strike action by ferry workers.

Huge queues of traffic are building up on both sides of the Channel as travellers try to find alternative routes back to the UK.

There are large numbers of illegal migrants in and around Calais, who may seek to enter the UK illegally. Although local police patrols have been reinforced, you should keep vehicle doors locked in slow moving traffic and secure your vehicle when it is left unattended.

– UK Government statement

The statement also warned of a "high threat" from terrorism because of the strike action.

"There is a high threat from terrorism. Due to ongoing threats to France by Islamist terrorist groups, and recent French military intervention against ISIL, the French government has warned the public to be especially vigilant and has reinforced its security measures."
