UK Border Security Tightens At Calais

Border security is being stepped up in northern France and Dover after migrants sought to exploit ferry strike action in Calais.
The BBC reports that hundreds of migrants tried to board slow-moving UK-bound lorries amid the chaos.
About 3,000 migrants are estimated to be living rough around Calais, waiting for a chance to cross the Channel.
Immigration minister James Brokenshire told the BBC that the situation was "hugely regrettable".
But he said it was "ultimately" up to the French authorities to "assure security and safety" at Calais.
Industrial action by French ferry workers forced the suspension of services through the Channel Tunnel between the UK and France on Tuesday.
