Calais ‘Jungle’ children with nowhere to sleep

Several hundred migrants remain inside the “Jungle” camp in Calais, BBC reporters at the scene say, despite French officials claiming the camp is now empty.

About 200 unaccompanied minors have been left with nowhere to sleep, our Europe reporter Gavin Lee says. Some 30 of them have been offered housing in a warehouse, but the situation for the rest remains unclear.

They are said to be becoming increasingly desperate. Nearly 5,600 people have been moved to reception centres since Monday, the government said in a statement (in French), including about 1,500 unaccompanied minors being housed in an on-site container camp.(BBC,2016)
