Calais Dozens of Migrants Storm Ferry in ‘Co-ordinated Attack’ on UK Border BERNARD BARRON AFP Getty Images3 Mar 2019

Almost 100 migrants trying to reach Britain broke into the port of Calais Saturday night.

AFP reported that police were continuing to look Sunday morning for at least four more migrants the police believed were still hiding out on the same ship where the other migrants had been apprehended.

The prefecture and humanitarian organisations estimate that several hundreds of migrants are living in the Calais area, all hoping to find a way to get to Britain.

About 50 of them managed to get aboard the DFDS-owned Calais Seaways ferry, which had recently docked after travelling from Dover by climbing up a maintenance ladded at high tide, according to reports.

"Firemen initially managed to get close to them but were unable to talk them down, a second attempt is underway", the official said, adding that the operation was made hard by strong winds and rain.

After they boarded the ferry on Saturday evening, some migrants spent the night in the funnel system of MS Calais Seaways, a DFDS line vessel.

"Two of the migrants fell into the water and were quickly fished out by firefighters" while police organised "the removal of vehicles, cars and trucks" from the ferry, Vennin told local media. Migrants managed to board a ship at the port last night, with the police operation to track them down causing a delay to cross-Channel traffic.
