Tearing down the Calais ‘jungle’: Bulldozers move-in despite migrant backlash
2,000 migrants will be evicted from the Jungle today
There have been scenes of chaos as refugees hurry to pack their belongings before the eviction begins.
The authorities have offered refugees heated accommodation in shipping containers.
A number have refused to move, for fear of ruining their chances of claiming asylum in Britain.
The makeshift city, which boasts a nightclub, places of worship and restaurants, is being dismantled.

The new camp is surrounded by fences, which some refugees claim will put a stop to their nightly attempts to reach Britain.
