Children left with 'nowhere to go' after Calais 'Jungle' camp clearance

French authorities has declared the operation to clear the 'Jungle' camp over - but charities have said hundreds of child refugees had been left with nowhere to go.

A total of 5,596 people have been evacuated since the operation began on Monday with many of them being taken away on buses, French ministries said. Of those removed from the camp, 234 children are being resettled in the UK.

Save The Children said it was "extremely concerned" about minors who had not been registered as the site went up in flames.

A spokeswoman for the local prefecture said that the rate of demolition would be scaled up on Thursday with larger machinery moving in.
