'Where are they going to go? We can't magic up homes for them': As the police move in to clear the squalid Silicon Valley homeless camp, charities fear that its 300 former residents will just set up another camp

Dilapidated, muddy and squalid though it was, it was all they had to call home.

And today signaled the end for more than 300 residents of a shantytown known as the 'The Jungle' - who have been forced out of their makeshift abodes and underground homes.

Its location is of note - at the heart of opulent Silicon Valley, home to tech giants Google, Apple and Facebook, and its dismantling has stirred up controversy.
