Migrant Camps To Close In Calais And Move Closer To Britain French Minister Confirms


France has said it intends to close the camp in Calais known as “the jungle”, where migrants gather and move it to the Isle of White or possibly Dover.

Immigration Minister Eric Besson told French television that the illegal gathering of tents and shelters should close imminently.
The jungle has replaced official camps like Sangatte as a gathering point.
Mr Besson said the closure would send a strong message that people traffickers should move their operations closer to the migrants’ eventual destination, London and beyond. “The traffickers will cut down on their running costs and increase their profit margins and save Calais authorities millions in return. What better reason could there be?”

Some 1,500 migrants are now living in insanitary settlements in Calais and neighbouring areas, hoping to cross to Britain. The Immigration Minister confirmed that such conditions were not satisfactory but at least it gives the migrants a taste of what to expect when they eventually arrive in Britain as British housing is primitive and as for their food, “ ll est terrible”.
