Chaotic scenes at Calais that led to the Channel Tunnel being shut after migrants attempted to climb aboard UK-bound lorries are "totally unacceptable", David Cameron has said.

The Prime Minister said it was important to work with the French during the crisis.

Services through the tunnel were returning to normal yesterday after the day of disruption caused by striking ferry workers.

Migrants must be better documented and fingerprinted but "a lot of that needs to happen in Italy where they land", Mr Cameron told MPs. During Prime Minister's questions, Mr Cameron said: "It is totally unacceptable scenes that we have all been witnessing in the last day."
