Lucy Phillips and her family were set upon when crossing on the ferry back from Calais
As many as 10 migrants jumped out from bushes on the roadside on August 22 before attacking the family’s car using bats and tree branches.
It was so scary and it seems that over the past couple of months the violence has got worse
Lucy, 26, moved to the back of the truck to try to calm her horse down when she heard the attackers attempting to make their way into the box through the side door.
She said: “It was so scary and it seems that over the past couple of months the violence has got worse.

“I don’t want to scare people. But anyone going out there needs to be so careful on the way back. We’ve vowed never to travel back at night again.”
Lucy explained how her parents were left covered in blood. Her mother Liz suffered cuts to her face while her father sustained cuts to his arm.
She added: “It was really scary and completely dark. We had been told to beep your horn to get the police’s attention and the migrants were telling us keep quiet.”
