CALAIS: Hun­dreds of mi­grants started queu­ing out­side a hangar out­side Calais yes­ter­day to be re­set­tled as the French gov­ern­ment started clear­ing a makeshift camp known as the “Jun­gle”. Armed po­lice fanned out around the ware­house and across the squalid shanty-town af­ter a night dur­ing which small groups of mi­grants burned toi­let blocks and hurled stones at se­cu­rity forces in protest at the plans to dis­man­tle the camp.
