Man remanded over tunnel 'walk'
A South African man has been remanded in custody after being arrested for apparently walking through the Channel Tunnel from England to France.

Lance Dyer, 38, of no fixed abode, was charged with a public nuisance offence and endangering life by being on a railway line.

He was handed over to Kent Police by French officers who arrested him at the tunnel entrance in Calais on Sunday.

Mr Dyer is due to reappear in court on 18 October.

He was remanded in custody by magistrates in Folkestone.
