Protesters have been gathering in Calais this morning ahead of a planned demonstration against the "Jungle" migrant camp.

British cross-Channel travellers have been warned they face major disruption as French shopkeepers, police, unionists and farmers join hauliers in calling for the northern section of the camp to be demolished.

A trade association has warned drivers will stand their ground until they see action to dismantle the camp.
