Paris to open two new migrant camps for THOUSANDS of UK-bound migrants

Mayor Ann Hidalgo said they will be located close to the Gare du Nord Eurostar terminal from where high speed trains travel direct to London.

Ms Hidalgo, a Socialist who is a close ally of President Francois Hollande, said: “There will be two migrant camps, one for men only, and one for women and children.”

She went on to say that up to 100 new migrants a day were currently arriving in Paris, and that the vast majority wanted to get to Calais, and then on to the UK. 

It comes as the right-wing council in Calais, 185 miles away, lobbies to destroy its own ‘Jungle’ refugee camp.
