Between 800 and 1,000 refugees and migrants scaled the razor wire-topped border fence in Spain’s North African enclave of Ceuta, Saturday, with one man staying atop the fence until dawn on Sunday.

A crane was deployed by the security forces on hand to help many of those stuck on top. They were then escorted back into Morocco.

There is a large permanent refugee presence on the border of the two Spanish enclaves in north Africa; Ceuta and Melilla, comprising people of mainly Sub-Saharan African and Syrian origin.
