Last Thursday 1,185 individuals made the regularly perilous intersection, a record number that the UK government said was “unsatisfactory”. The UK has blamed French experts for not doing what’s necessary to control the intersections, and approached them to cinch down on individuals sneaking. France in the mean time has blamed the UK government for dramatically overemphasizing the size of movement for political reasons, and neglecting to deflect individuals from making the intersection.
