Banksy's Dismaland to be sent to Calais 'Jungle' to shelter migrants

Banksy has revealed his Dismaland Bemusement Park will be sent to Calais to help shelter thousands of migrants.

All the timber and fixtures from what was billed as 'Britain's most disappointing tourist attraction' will be sent to The Jungle - the biggest refugee camp there.

Writing on the Dismaland website, the elusive street artist posted a picture of the migrant camp in Calais superimposed onto his fire-ravaged fairytale Cinderella Castle.

He captioned it: "Coming soon... Dismaland Calais.

"All the timber and fixtures from Dismaland are being sent to the 'jungle' refugee camp near Calais to build shelters. No online tickets will be available."

The sell-out exhibition opened at a derelict lido in Weston-Super-Mare last month attracting thousands of visitors every day.

It featured migrant boats, Jimmy Savile and an anarchist training camp.

The dismantling process is expected to take three weeks.

An estimated 5,000 migrants displaced from countries including Syria, Libya and Eritrea are believed to be camped in and around Calais.
