Smuggling yourself from France to Britain can be hugely expensive for refugees, but there is a cheaper "pot-luck" option – the only snag being you might end up in a French military base. Some who have used the 500-euro ($550) smuggling service at a motorway rest stop near the northern French port of Calais have found themselves heading in completely the wrong direction, winding up in lorries to Germany or Belgium rather than their dream destination of Britain.One group of three young men and two women came back to Calais saying they had woken up in a French military base.Migrants and refugees can be expected to pay several thousand euros to guarantee passage to Britain, according to people working in the Jungle.Vandy was not clear on his charges or why he was released, but he was now back in the camp, along with the thousands of others hoping to reach Britain.
