UK warns EU exit could mean migrant camps on south coast

A British EU exit could mean thousands of migrants landing on Britain’s shores “overnight”, the government said, stepping up the rhetoric in the campaign ahead of a referendum on membership. Prime Minister David Cameron’s spokesman said a “Brexit” could undermine a Franco-British bilateral agreement that allows Britain to carry out border checks on French soil, stopping many migrants. “Should Britain leave the EU there’s no guarantee those controls would remain in place,” Cameron’s spokesman told reporters at a daily briefing.
