BRITISH holidaymakers were stranded in the Channel after up to 100 migrants trying to reach the UK broke through security barriers and climbed onto a ferry at the port of Calais and forced its temporary closure.
Witnesses said 100 migrants had broken through the perimeter of the port of Calais last night, at about 8.30pm.
Passengers stuck on ships were told, preventing boats coming from Dover to dock
Two of the asylum-seekers trying to get to Britain fell into the sea, prompting a rescue.
The Calais port remained closed for a little more than an hour, while concerned Britons were either trying to get on a UK-bound ship or attempting to reach France.
