A teenager, thought to be from east Africa, has been killed by a freight train near the Channel Tunnel entrance in Calais, officials have said.
The boy is thought to have been 15-17 years old.
A spokesman for Eurotunnel in France said paramedics and police were called after someone was found unconscious near the railway tracks.
He is the 11th person to have died in or near the tunnel while trying to reach Britain since late June.
