The French port of Calais, where thousands of migrants have been storming a freight terminal in the hope of entering the UK, descended even further into chaos today as striking workers blocked a road with burning tyres.

The protest took place after negotiations over job cuts with the French government broke down.

The Mirror reports that the men, who work for the My Ferry Link company, started shouting obscenities at British drivers such as “F*** you English!”
