Jude Law's Security Team Attacked, Robbed by Migrants at Calais Jungle Camp

The star was filiming about the plight of refugee children.

Actor Jude Law was filming about the plight of migrants in a jungle camp in Calais, France when his security team was ambushed and robbed by migrants. 

The Mirror writes, "But shortly after the cameras stopped rolling, their minders were ambushed by some of the migrants and had their phones stolen."

Law was already on the bus when the attack happened.

According to a source, "We were shocked to see some of the migrants acting like football hooligans. The security team had stones thrown at them, and two had their phones smashed then stolen. Jude and Tom were told to stay in the bus shortly before the ambush as the atmosphere was building."

Law was touring the camp and asking for the government to allow the children to go the UK if they have family there.  During his visit, the movie star "read out notes from famous historical figures to 200 immigrants fleeing war-torn countries in an event at the makeshift Good Chance Theatre, organised by Letters Live."

Law said after the event, “It’s our ­responsibility as humans to look after our children. The children in the camp at Calais need us. It isn’t a big ask. It is simply the right thing to do.”

The camp is set to be demolished in an effort to discourage refugees from trying to cross over into Britain. More than 100 celebrities have signed a letter to UK's David Cameron to help the children in the camp.
