Work begins on Calais wall to stop refugees trying to board lorries to UK
Four-metre-high, 1km-long wall, funded by UK government, to be made of smooth concrete to prevent climbing
Work has begun on a £1.9m wall to block migrants and asylum seekers from attempting to board lorries heading to the Calais port.
The structure will stand four metres tall and 1km long on both sides of the dual carriageway approaching the port, a few hundred metres from the main refugee camp, where over 10,000 people live in conditions that charities describe as dangerous and dirty.
