CALAIS JUNGLE - MARCH 2016
The Calais Jungle was a refugee and migrant encampment in the vicinity of Calais, France, in use from January 2015 to October 2016. This camp was an example of the issue of migrants around Calais, who attempt to enter the United Kingdom via the Port of Calais or the Channel Tunnel by stowing away on lorries, ferries, cars, or trains travelling to the UK. The camp gained global attention during the peak of the European migrant crisis in 2015 when the population of the camp rapidly grew and French authorities began carrying out evictions. Some 6,400 migrants were removed from the encampment in 170 buses in October 2016, with the intent of resettling them in different regions of France. On 26 October 2016, French authorities announced that the camp had been cleared.
