Sudanese man who walked to Britain through Channel Tunnel to face court


A Sudanese man who walked to Britain from France through the Channel Tunnel will appear in court.

Abdul Rahman Haroun, 40, was arrested after being caught by officers walking at the end of the 31-mile sub-sea tunnel at Folkestone, Kent, on August 4 last year.

Haroun, who is on bail, faces a charge of "causing an obstruction to an engine or carriage".

He is due to enter a plea at Canterbury Crown Court in front of Judge Adele Williams.
