The Road Haulage Association is very concerned that French customs action is leaving lorry drivers vulnerable to migrant attacks.
One haulier told us they abandoned a number of planned Channel crossings last week after migrants tried to break into a lorry whilst the driver was held in a queue for 12 hours outside Dunkirk.
RHA chief executive, Richard Burnett says drivers have a right to do their job safely and shouldn’t be left vulnerable to attacks from migrants and people smugglers.
“Yet again we’re hearing horrifying stories of truckers running a gauntlet of people trying to break into their lorries. It’s completely unacceptable. The French authorities need to do more to protect UK-bound lorries.”
