I was talking to some of the staff on eurotunnel yesterday, regarding clandestine immigrants, as I saw one on the train last week, he was of course being held by staff at the uk end, but also last week, one had apparently sneaked into a car and actually made it to the drivers destination, this particular case had made the news, now when you hear about the tunnel and it's delays on the traffic report, it's down to these immigrants trying to get in, they are however targeting cars, vans, campers, caravans (you get the picture) in the Calais area whether it be a fuel station or shop just because it's a few pence cheaper than the uk.. Please beware around that area.. Pass it on.

I heard about this on the news. The woman got to her house and opened the door on her car to let the dogs out, then suddenly a pair of legs started to get out as well. Must have been scary for her, not knowing that someone else in the car with her.

I'd sack those dogs. They say you are at risk anywhere within 200km of Calais, presumably excluding South West England :-)

I go to Belgium & Holland 1 or 2 times a month & I always used to fill up near Nieupoort on the E40, but even that far out from Calais I've noticed 'migrants' hanging around & walking down the hard shoulder. I rarely stop within a few hours of Calais these days.

The last time I was approached at Calais by dodgy looking character, it turned out to be you Gary :-) Had a long wait at passport control that day if memory serves me right.

Hahaha... remember it.. Lol, passport control or UKBA are now becoming a pain in the backside, they spend more time harassing the genuine than actually doing there job properly, and you alway get one who thinks hes above everyone else.
