The government's emergency COBRA committee has met today to discuss the growing crisis at Calais. Meanwhile Eurotunnel has confirmed that another migrant has died, after a collision with a lorry. The Tunnel was closed again yesterday, and last night an estimated 1,500 migrants attempted to breach the security zone boundaries and invade lorries and Eurotunnel services bound for Britain. The Freight Transport Association wants the army to be brought in, while the French authorities are calling for the border to be moved from Calais to the English side. The prime minister, speaking during his visit to Vietnam, said the situation was 'very concerning'.
