    Children risk lives to sneak into Britain

    Boys of 12 and younger are among those living in filth in a wood as they wait to cross the Channel as stowaways


    A French customs officer discovers four Romanian immigrants stowed away in a truck heading for the UK

    HE has crossed deserts, seas and mountains in pursuit of his dream but the English Channel is proving more of an obstacle. Sawab, a 12-year-old Afghan boy, is reduced to living under a piece of plastic in Calais while awaiting a passage to Britain.

    Sawab is one of a growing band of children who have joined the throng of supposed refugees hoping to hide in lorries travelling from Calais to Dover, increasing pressure on the French to offer humanitarian aid despite British complaints that this will merely attract more migrants.

    “It’s becoming quite commonplace to see children travelling without parents,

    Anglo-French detention centre to thwart would-be illegal immigrants

    A joint Anglo-French detention centre is being planned for Calais to hold hundreds of migrants gathering near the Channel port to try to enter Britain illegally.

    Migrants would be held to await deportation from France on chartered aircraft paid for by the British and French governments. The move follows calls from the French authorities for Britain to take an active role in curbing the flow of migrants arriving in Calais.

    With about five hundred migrants in Calais — and about ten reaching Britain hidden on lorries every night — Eric Besson, the French Immigration Minister, is under pressure from residents whose anger has been fuelled by incidents such as the fight that broke out between dozens of migrants in the centre of Calais yesterday.

    Phil Woolas, the Immigration Minister, disclosed proposals to tackle the surge of migrants, many from Afghanistan and Iraq, at Channel ports hoping for a new life in Britain. He took Home Office officials by surprise with his disclosure of the initiative, which he said ministers hoped could be announced officially at the annual Anglo-French summit in May.
