Eurotunnel services have been suspended after a “massive invasion” of more than 100 migrants at the French terminal.

A “large and co-ordinated” group broke through fences and stormed the Channel Tunnel at around 12.30am, Eurotunnel said.

A spokesman said: “It’s a massive invasion and intrusion by a very large and co-ordinated group of migrants.

“They are being gathered up by the police authorities.”

He added: “It’s clearly an organised attack when it comes in such a large number, there are over 100 in this one group.

“They arrived together an in a well-organised manner, broke through the fences and all clearly knew where they were going.”

Services have been suspended but there are no trains stopped in the tunnel and p assengers have been directed to use the ferry to carry on with their journey.
