Migrant electrocuted


A migrant is found dead on the roof of a freight train carriage. Police say he climbed onto one of the shuttles that carry lorries through the tunnel, and was electrocuted, presumably by overhead power lines. He is the tenth person to die in or near the tunnel since the middle of this year. Authorities say new security measures have recently been introduced at the tunnel entrance. This has led to a fall in migrant intrusion attempts from about 2,000 down to 150 attempts each night.
