A security incident at the Port of Calais involving at least 50 people 'is now resolved', according to ferry company P&O.

Some people managed to break into the port after a demonstration, which was held in support of migrants living in a slum nearby, came to an end.

An official said about 50 of the demonstrators managed to board the P&O ferry 'Spirit of Britain' but the company said they "had not managed to get inside the ship, as staff had locked the doors to prevent all access from the deck."
