Belgium has abandoned free movement, with armed guards patrolling road checkpoints with France and mounted officers blocking rural crossing points.

Police carrying out car-by-car checks on the French border turned back 80 mainly Afghan migrants today.

The border checks were last put in place last November following the Paris attacks that left 130 people dead.

Today’s checks came a day after Belgium began reinstating controls to stop people coming from the ‘Jungle’ camp in Calais.

A huge operation was set up to monitor three border crossings and surrounding seaside dunes in the De Panne region bordering France.

It involves around 300 police officers, a helicopter and mounted police.

‘Currently over the past 24 hours we have prevented 80 people, mainly Afghans, from coming into Belgium,’ police spokesman Peter Dewaele said.

‘A further 25 people – Syrians, Iranians and Afghans – have been intercepted on Belgian territory.
‘After having been interrogated by the Foreigners’ Office, they were immediately driven back to the French border.’
