FIVE migrants have been taken to hospital after becoming trapped atop a border fence in the Spanish enclave of Ceuta.
They were part of a group of around 150 migrants who were attempting to enter Spain from neighbouring Morocco by climbing over the six-meter-high wire fence.
The video shows dozens of stuck migrants sitting on top of the fences which are covered in barbed wire.
They were eventually brought down by a crane before five were taken to hospital for minor injuries and the rest were returned to Morocco.
The UN Refugee Agency – the UNHCR – are now monitoring the situation ‘with care’, and have reminded Spain of their obligation to provide asylum to those in need of protection.
Ceuta and Melilla are Spanish territories that border North Africa, making them popular entry points for migrants attempting to get to Europe.
