Inside Dunkirk’s new migrant camp

Author: | Posted in World News No comments

31 people on their way to the UK have drowned in the English Channel near Calais after their boat sank.

Last week, French police evicted up to 1,500 people from a camp in Grande Synthe, Dunkirk, known as the “New Jungle”.

But many have now settled in a place on the road hoping to reach Britain by crossing the English Channel – a dangerous journey.

BBC Newsnight’s police editor Lewis Goodall reports from the new Dunkirk camp.
