His face masked, he lies in wait as freight lorries approach the ferry terminal at Calais.
Crawling along at 5mph, they are easy targets for the man known as the Doorman to Britain.
He dashes out of the bushes and tries to wrench open the lorries' rear doors. Usually they are locked but every now and again he gets lucky.
And when he does, a crowd of immigrants are waiting to pile into the unsuspecting truck driver's vehicle, hoping that at last they've found a way to sneak into Britain.
The Doorman was plying his trade on Thursday night, when he was seen trying at least four trucks before he found a Dutch lorry with its back door open and summoned his 'clients'.
Each one has paid around £500 for help in getting across the Channel.
