PM sends sniffer dogs and fencing and 'rules nothing out'

Prime Minister David Cameron has said Britain will send extra sniffer dogs and fencing to France in response to the Calais migrant crisis.

Mr Cameron also confirmed Ministry of Defence land will be used to ease congestion with freight vehicles queued in Kent to head to the continent.

David Cameron announced the plans after chairing a Cobra meeting at Downing Street.

"We're going to take action right across the board," Mr Cameron said, confirming he will speak with French President Hollande later today and extend an offer to work "hand in glove" with his administration.

"This is going to be an issue right across the summer," he added. "We rule nothing out to dealing with this very serious problem. We're absolutely on it. We know it needs more work."
