Calais migrants heading to UK after landmark court ruling

Four Syrian migrants arrived in Britain from the so-called “Jungle” migrant camp in Calais after a landmark court ruling which could see more crossing the Channel. Family members greeted them as they arrived by train in St Pancras station in central London, where a crowd of about 100 demonstrators stood with yellow balloons and banners reading “refugees welcome”. It came after judges on a British immigration tribunal on Wednesday ordered the interior ministry to allow the four to enter Britain while their asylum claims are considered.
