LONDON, May 24 (FAM) – The UK’s Freight Transport Association (FTA) today urged the UK government to lobby the French authorities to protect truck drivers passing through the Calais area, following reports of increased migrant activity targeting lorries approaching the port.

According to driver reports, rubbish bins were placed on the entry to the Port of Calais on Sunday night (21 May), and vehicles were attacked with stones, as migrants attempted to board lorries travelling towards the port. A Czech driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries, and police quickly dispersed the migrants involved.
