Paris’s new tent city: French capital is scarred by illegal alien invader camps

The streets of Paris have become a temporary home to thousands of migrants after the Calais Jungle camp was closed down this week.

Many of those living in the sprawling camp were bused away to reception centres around France earlier this week but up to 5,000 migrants are thought to have travelled away independently, with many of them now pitching up in Paris.

The number of migrants fleeing war and persecution in countries such as Eritrea, Sudan and Afghanistan and now sleeping in illegal camps in Paris has increased by a third since the destruction of the Calais Jungle, it was warned yesterday.

The French capital appears to be turning into the new hub for thousands of asylum seekers seeking a new life in Britain.
