Migrants Stick A Ladder Out Of A Moving Lorry In A Bid To Escape

A motorway driver has captured the moment a ladder is rammed out of the side of a lorry after stowaways onboard realise it is going the wrong way.

The occupants had climbed into the back of the lorry in the hope that it was going to the UK, but when they realised it was travelling away from Britain, they desperately tried to alert the driver to their presence.

David Hurrell, 41, was driving between Calais and Dunkirk, said the man was trying to attract the attention of the driver by banging on the side, but when he failed to alert him, he grabbed a ladder from inside and stuck it out.
