BREAKING: Motorcyclist dies in motorway shoot-out between ‘people smugglers’ in UK car

5 May

The drama unfolded on the A16 near the French port of Dunkirk, after a high-speed chase which started across the border in Belgium after a lorry driver stopped on the hard shoulder and called police to report a group of migrants hiding in his lorry.


Police arrived quickly and two men, thought to be people smugglers of Iraqi nationality, jumped out of the back of the truck and into a maroon Audi with a British number plate.

The Audi, which had four men in it, reached speeds of 125mph as police chased it, causing three accidents, including one in which a motorcyclist from the Netherlands drove into the back of a lorry, killing the driver.

A car was also seen on its roof in the middle of the motorway.
