A lorry driver has shared terrifying footage of what he claims is the moment migrants in Calais laid concrete blocks in the road in an attempt to get into the UK. Soroiu Sorin came upon the group one of whom was holding a flare on a dark road near the Calais Ferry Terminal while on his way from Orleans to Manchester on Tuesday. The road is completely blocked off by what appear to be concrete slabs as one of the men steps into the road in an attempt to stop the lorry and, Sorin fears hijack it.
But rather than find out what the ambushers had in store for him, the video shows Soroiu plough through the blocks in a desperate attempt ‘not to stop’. The 28-year-old Irishman shared the video and pictures of the damage done to his truck to raise awareness of the dangers in Calais to drivers.
In the video, Soroiu can be seen maintaining his speed and bravely ramming through the blocks, damaging his bumper in the process in an attempt to flee. Soroiu said the lack of police presence in that part of Calais has led to the situation getting out of hand.
Soroiu reported the incident to his boss, and posted the video on social media in an attempt to raise awareness about the perils of driving through Calais at night. The video was shared on social media and received hundreds of shares.
