Traffic jams up to 30 miles long built up on roads between Hungary and Austria yesterday as police stepped up searches to stop gangs of people smugglers trafficking migrants through Europe.
And in chaotic scenes at a Budapest railway station, thousands boarded trains bound for Vienna and Munich with chants including: ‘Germany! Germany!’
The town I’m in, Usti nad Labem, is on the main line Budapest, Prague, Berlin. An idle wonder really, wonder if those trains are full? Could well not be, as it would be the long way around. And there’s no Prague: Munich link (it’s a bus) so, maybe not I guess.
