(Newser) – An illegal immigrant was nabbed in England clinging to the outside of a Eurostar rail car, reports the Independent. The trains reach speeds of 186 mph. The train originated in Brussels and traveled through France. Police provided no details on how the man survived the risky journey. Immigrants sneaking into England are a continuing problem. Last week a French official vowed to destroy a squatter camp of people waiting for a chance to steal across the English Channel from northern France.
