‘Tear it down ASAP’: French minister issues warning over Dunkirk migrant camp

The news comes less than five months after the Jungle refugee camp in the neighbouring town of Calais was reduced to dust and rubble by the authorities.

The Grande-Synthe tent camp in Dunkirk is currently home to more than 1,500 UK-bound refugees – mostly from Iraq, Iran, Syria and Afghanistan – and is said to be dangerously overcrowded.

Addressing a Senate committee on Wednesday, Mr Le Roux said Grande-Synthe residents were behaving in an “unacceptable manner” and posed a “threat” to public order.
