This report takes us to the French coastal town of Calais, where thousands of migrants, largely from the Middle East and Africa, are desperately trying to board boats or trucks in order to travel to Britain. Calais is a magnet for the migrants from war zones and poor countries who are trying to reach Britain. For years French police have been trying to remove migrant camps in and around Calais; however, the number of arriving migrants have been persistent. Many of the migrants hope to hide in trucks or other vehicles crossing to Britain. We will see what life is like in the camps and find out how they are treated by the police and most local people and if Britain rejects them or not.
