Extra security at Calais

Police reinforcements managed to block another surge of migrants from entering the Channel tunnel overnight...but most are still determined to get to Britain.

The Government is expected to announce it will fund the provision of extra private security guards at the entrance to the Eurotunnel.

UK and France have urged other EU nations to help address the root causes of the Calais migrant crisis. Meanwhile, the Home Office said support could end for failed asylum-seekers, to discourage illegal migration.

Bolstered security measures planned for around the French end of the Channel Tunnel, which include more CCTV surveillance, French police reinforcements and extra fencing, were agreed between Prime Minister David Cameron and President Francois Hollande on Friday.

Meanwhile social Services and fostering agencies are struggling to cope as hundreds of migrant children are being left at the sides of roads near Dover bewildered and unable to speak English. The abandoned youngsters - some as young as 12 - are often traumatised after their long journeys across Europe and need to be found a safe place to stay.
