Spectacular drone footage captured the moment defiant migrants were tear gassed by police at the Hungarian border yesterday and shows the staggering scale of the great wall of Europe erected to keep them out.
The film, shot for MailOnline yesterday afternoon, records the clouds of gas and pepper spray deployed by Hungarian police as they violently clashed with protesting refugees.
The footage provides a bird’s-eye-view of the 110-mile barrier, dubbed the new Iron Curtain, erected by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban to keep refugees out.
Hungary closed its border with Serbia two days ago with tensions rising as migrants who have already travelled thousands of miles were blocked from proceeding on their way, mostly to Germany.
Chancellor Angela Merkel has guaranteed a home to Syrians, but there are also many Afghans and Iraqis among the refugees.
