The ‘Jungle’ camp in Calais was being cleared today by the French authorities, as the first child refugees tried to find homes in the UK.
Up to 1,300 foreign nationals were bussed away from the makeshift site to locations across France.
At least 7,000 people have been living in the refugee camp in squalid conditions, some for years.
Migrants queued peacefully to be processed, and half of the 60 coaches lined up to will carry them to migrant centres across France have now left.
Protestors gathered outside the Home Office to call for better treatment of the unaccompanied minors.
Home Affairs Commitee chairwoman Yvette Cooper warned that child refugees risk slipping into the hands of smugglers.
