Britain to start building anti-migrant wall in Calais

Britain is to start building a wall in the northern French port of Calais to stop migrants jumping on trucks, under a deal agreed earlier this year, the interior ministry said Wednesday. Green Party MP Caroline Lucas called the wall “monstrous” while campaign group Citizens UK asked Britain to use the money instead to transfer child migrants with families in Britain from Calais. Richard Burnett, chief executive of Britain’s Road Haulage Association also told the BBC the plan was a “poor use of taxpayers’ money”.
