|British border guards in Calais have been banned from using X-rays to search for illegal immigrants in lorries - unless they ask for the stowaways' written permission.
French authorities have blocked the use of the scanners, claiming they could breach European health and safety laws.
They have told British immigration officials that if they want to use the machines they will first have to clear it with those they are looking for.
Given that the illegal immigrants do not want to be found, the chances of reaching such an agreement are zero, leaving the British no choice but to stop using the machines.
