The number of illegal migrants risking life and limb to get into Europe is increasing all the time. Here are two shocking videos which give a glimpse of the desperate lengths these people will go to in their efforts to reach Western countries where they believe ‘the streets are paved with gold’.

What would Jesus have said?
