Irish truck drivers say they fear for their lives after a driver was held at knifepoint by migrants in the French port city of Calais.
Graham Lowndes of TTS Transport was taking a rest stop in Calais in the early hours of Monday morning when he was held at knife-point by a migrant.
Despite having only covered a four-mile distance in almost six hours due to slow-moving and heavy traffic, it is mandatory by law for drivers to take a rest period every nine hours.
The driver was interrupted by a migrant banging on his door and asking for cigarettes.
While he was distracted, a second man broke into his lorry and held him at knifepoint.
The men left after they had stolen an iPhone from the truck.
