Calais ‘jungle’: Illegal alien invaders set tents on fire as riot police attempt to evict them

Riot police fired tear gas to push back migrants who set fire to tents and threw stones as bulldozers and demolition teams moved into the Calais “Jungle” camp on Monday.

The clashes came as officials attempted to remove migrants from their shacks after a judge upheld a decision to evict them from the southern part of the squalid camp.

Around 150 to 200 migrants and activists threw stones at police, who later deployed a water cannon.
