NEW IMAGES: Life Inside Migrant ‘Jungle’ in Northern France

Hundreds of migrants are now camped at a makeshift site near the port of Calais in northern France in a desperate bid to reach the UK.

The camp, which has been dubbed “The Jungle”, sprawls over 50 acres and sits next to one of the main highways on the route to the freight terminal for the Channel Tunnel. The Daily Mail says it includes tents, makeshift houses, shops and even a school and church.
