A polar bear is moving from Moscow Zoo to England. Its name is Nissan. Nissan is in a cage in a lorry.

The lorry is now in Calais. In Calais, there are many migrants. They want to get from Calais to Britain.

Some migrants open the lorry. They see the polar bear. One migrant gets scared. He runs away.

Three other migrants enter the lorry. They hide in the lorry. They are behind the cage. They are there only for 10 minutes. Police come and catch them.

Difficult words: cage (a big metal box for animals), migrant (a person who is moving from one country to another).
