Ben Affleck: 'I would never miss Halloween with my kids'

Actor Ben Affleck has revealed that Halloween is one of his favourite times with his three children.

Ben, who is currently starring in The Accountant alongside Anna Kendrick, told Richard Arnold that he never misses Halloween festivities with his three kids with Jennifer Garner - Violet, Seraphina and Samuel.

But he stressed that he doesn't dress up as Batman for the occasion.

"Privately I take a break from my costumes," the Batman star admitted.
"I always try to make sure I'm home for things like Halloween. Those are things you can't replicate and if you do it's a killer."

First migrants leave Jungle camp in Calais

Six and a half thousand residents of the Calais migrant camp begin leaving in convoys of buses this morning.

The camp, which has been in Calais for 14 years, includes many vulnerable children who have been travelling on their own.

There are still many inside the jungle who say they are refusing to leave. A number of clashes with French police took place overnight and tear gas was fired.

Night flames lit up the sky for a second night running as tensions boiled over among residents angry at plans to demolish the camp and forcibly remove its residents on Monday.

The camp's closure has been described as "total chaos" by British and French authorities and there are worries that vulnerable families will face further danger.

Schools and facilities run by charities in the camp have already been shut.
