    A small port town in northern France has become the new transit point for refugees trying to reach Britain.

    Migrants have moved on to the area of Ouistreham due to tight security in the city of Calais, where the so-called "jungle" refugee camp was destroyed a year ago.

    Some locals are not impressed with their new neighbours, while others are welcoming them.

     

    Al Jazeera's Natacha Butler reports from Ouistreham.
