The failure of EU open borders has once again been demonstrated as a charity have revealed that a group of Romanians have been living in a camp under the north circular.
Thames Reach call the clump of tents under a fly-over the ‘fortress’ camp because it can only be reached by river or through a wooden ladder in a gap between two carriage ways, a BBC report revealed.
It is home to up to 20 migrants who now have free movement to the UK but, it appears, were unprepared for how expensive life in Britain is compared to Romania and how work is not regularly available – particularly for those who don’t speak English.
It is believed the men arrived at the concrete site earlier this year after being moved on from another site. One man told the BBC that they made the wooden ladder by hand, hammering in nails with rocks “like in the stone age”.
The men said they lived there because “If we want to go and live in the woods they’ll chase us away from that place.”
“This is the only place we can live in,” thy said.
It is estimated that a third of rough sleepers in the Capital are from Eastern Europe and the charity are trying to spread the message that they should avoid camps like the fortress.
