ITV News is on the ground as around 500 people, including children, have been arriving at the building every day.

They are forced to sleep on concrete floors and struggle to keep warm in the freezing cold.

ITV News Correspondent Dan Rivers said the conditions were among the worst he had seen in a camp.

"No tents, just a mattress on a freezing floor," he tweeted.
