The French police on Friday dismantled a camp with several hundred migrants that had been established in some warehouses in a neighborhood on the outskirts of the French city of Calais , the main port of connection with Great Britain.
The Prefecture (a government delegation) explained on its Twitter account that the operation began at 6 am “at the instruction of the Ministry of the Interior” and based on a judicial decision.
The evacuation of the around 600 people – according to the figures given by the authorities – took place in the Virval neighborhood, near the Calais hospital, in some warehouses where they had found refuge for a few months.
The migrants were directed by the forces of order to a dozen buses to be sent to different reception centers in the department of Pas de Calais.
About thirty children
The Prefecture said in a statement, in which it pointed out that about thirty children lived in the ships , that before the evacuation the occupants had been proposed to transfer them to different shelters.
The owner of the ships had filed a complaint about the occupation, which had led to an expulsion order.
On Tuesday night there had been a stab fight involving some thirty people.
The mayor of Calais, Natacha Bouchart, and the president of the region, Xavier Bertrand, had demanded that the Government evacuate that camp to prevent a large-scale implantation such as the one outside the city from being reconstituted in the city , known as “the jungle”.
