French villagers construct 6ft concrete WALL around hotel to stop it being turned into a migrant centre

Residents of a French town have built a concrete wall around an abandoned hotel to stop it being turned into a migrant shelter.

Worried locals in the town of Séméac, in the Hautes-Pyrénées, constructed the 6ft high, 65ft long barricade on Monday morning.

Laurent Teixeira runs local group Collectif Semeac, which built the wall, and says the town is not against welcoming those in need.
