Inside Story

What comes after the Calais Jungle?

The French government is dismantling the Calais camp, dashing the hopes of thousands who dreamed of reaching the UK.

It has been the squalid home of around 8,000 refugees and migrants.

Now the makeshift camp near Calais is being emptied to prepare for demolition.

Many refugees had hoped to cross the English Channel to start a new life in the UK.

Instead, they have been bussed to alternative sites across France.

Why have European governments failed to adopt a common policy on immigration?
