Shoppers are flocking to France to buy this year's must-have Xmas gift, the Nintendo Wii.
The console - in chronically short supply in the UK - is fetching up to £1,000 on eBay. But it can be bought for just £150 across the Channel.
Queues form each day outside stores in Calais where shops have limited customers to just one Wii each. A Micromania spokesman said: "English interest is phenomenal."
