Migrants sleep in the charred remains of the 'Jungle' camp in Calais — More than 100 migrants, including minors, have spent the night sleeping in or near the charred wreck of the Jungle migrant camp, despite French authorities declaring it "empty".

Migrants returning to Calais 'Jungle' as most fires are tamed — Migrants have started moving back into the "Jungle", hours after French authorities announced they had finished clearing out the Calais camp.
