Migrants are flooding the area once again nearly a year after the demolition of the Jungle migrant camp, sparking fears that new makeshift settlements are springing up in the area.
Express reporter Giles Sheldrick, who witnessed the car scrap, said the raging driver was attacked with stones and the motors he was transporting were damaged.
It was the second moment of violence he witnessed in the space of just 30 minutes yesterday, the paper reported.
On Wednesday shock figures revealed there were 30,000 attempts by desperate migrants to reach Britain through the Calais port and Channel Tunnel since January alone.
There were 17,867 attempts to break into the fortified zone around the area, and a total of 12,349 efforts were also made to stow away on British-bound lorries.
Released by French authorities, the figures show a shock rise from an estimated 25,000 to 28,000 attempts to breach border security around Calais in the same period last year.
