Eritrean asylum seeker ‘grabbed knife and terrified staff’ at ex-army barracks holding hundreds of migrants

Police were mixed to a previous armed force encampment after an Eritrean haven searcher was said to have ‘snatched a blade and panicked staff’. 

A Kent Police representative stated: ‘Kent Police was called at 7.45am on Monday 14 December 2020 to a report that a man had been seen with a blade at a location in Sandgate, Folkestone. 

It comes after it was uncovered that two transients are getting away from the camp each week. 

Napier Barracks was transformed into an ‘appraisal and dispersal office’ for transients, with 400 showing up in September at the tallness of the traveler emergency, which has seen thousands cross the Channel and show up in Britain this year. 

Presently, it has been uncovered that eight appearances were recorded as missing from the camp between September 22 and October 20. 

He disclosed to The Telegraph: ‘The quantity of shelter searchers that have just left the camp brings up major issues about the security of the Napier Barracks office.’ 

The garrison huts was one of two destinations set up to guarantee transients are socially separated during the Covid pandemic. 

Bridget Chapman, learning and task facilitator at Kent Refugee Action Network, contended recently that the sleeping shelter camp is a wrong office considering its present absconsion rate. 

She stated: ‘A great many people showing up have solid refuge claims and need those to be prepared. 

The camp hit the news in November after travelers remaining there challenged conditions.
