TRAFFICKERS are giving migrants pepper spray to fight off French police trying to stop them leaving for Britain.
Several officers have been attacked with the spray and different weapons.
Police Commissioner Laurent Hurst stated: “We are finding increasing numbers of canisters. The migrants are desperate. They have paid thousands to get across and they are not going to be stopped.”
Migrants concern their possibilities of crossing the Channel will quickly be hit by the strategy of winter and by UK plans, revealed in yesterday’s Sun, to use jet skis to flip spherical dinghies.
The Sun on Sunday was invited on patrol with the French police — who inside minutes foiled a launch at Sangatte.
About two dozen migrants fled into woods, forsaking a household of six, together with a child.
The father stated they trekked from Iraq earlier than paying 20,000 euros every for the crossing.
He added: “We borrowed and then gave everything we had. What will happen to us now?”
This night, France stated it had rescued 126 folks in three incidents off the Calais coast, taking the full saved at sea this week to greater than 330.
Britain is ready to spend £200million — together with on a fleet of drones and changing cutters.
