Elsewhere a furious French woman took to Facebook to post photos of her friend’s smashed car, which she says was attacked during the same night of violence.
In a post that has been shared more than 8,000 times Emeline Vetu said the migrant chaos in Calais “shames France” and said the police are not doing enough to restore order.
She rages: “My friends were attacked yesterday on the highway by 15 migrants with sticks and stones.
“It was without reason – a gratuitous beating. At the moment, they no longer have any ID documents, any money, or their car…they were just left with a head injury and a dislocated jaw.”
