The True Migrant Crisis

Published Apr 14, 2016

In August 2015, after being invited by a haulier in his constituency, UKIP MEP for Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire, Mike Hookem set off for Calais to see the effects of the migrant crisis for himself.
The chain of events that transpired saw Mike threatened with a gun by people traffickers; surrounded by migrants looking for passage to the UK on a truck, and disturbing trespassers looking to gain entry to the EuroTunnel.
Six months on from his first visit, Mike has returned to Northern France with a film crew to see how the situation has developed. What Mike found, shocked even him.
