PM: A swarm of migrants want to come to Britain

The Prime Minister has insisted Calais is safe and secure despite a "swarm" of migrants wanting to cross the Mediterranean and come to Britain.

David Cameron told ITV News migrants were "seeking a better life" because we have "jobs, a growing economy and it's an incredible place to live".

He added: "We need to protect our borders by working hand in glove with our neighbours, the French, and that is exactly what we are doing."
