French Channel Tunnel train drivers 'haunted' by migrant deaths

Police officers patrol a Eurotunnel train depot on August 5, 2015 in Fréthun, near CalaisFrench train drivers who work for Eurotunnel said Thursday they were so overcome with fear and anxiety over the deaths of migrants trying to cross to Britain that they could no longer do their job. The drivers with France’s largest labour union, the CGT, published an open letter calling for action following the deaths of at least 13 migrants in five months as they tried to access the tunnel. The most recent reported death was on Wednesday when an Eritrean in his twenties was found dead after being hit by a freight train.
