Journalism student from London college raped whilst investigating immigration camp

Police are investigating claims that a female journalism student from a London college has been raped whilst reporting on an illegal immigration camp in Calais, reports The Telegraph.

The woman, said to be in her 30s, was working alone interviewing immigrants in the makeshift camp called ‘The Jungle”.

A local police spokesman said: “She appeared to be working alone, which was clearly a very dangerous thing to do.

“We fear that the men she was reporting on attacked her in the wood where they were staying.”
