More violence at the Grande-Synthe migrant camp near Dunkirk

”A fire has largely destroyed a camp where 1,500 migrants have been waiting desperately to enter Britain.

At least six are injured after a night of violence at the Grande-Synthe migrant camp near Dunkirk in northern France on Monday night.

Police said it began with scuffles and a knife fight between the migrants – mostly from North Africa and the Middle East – which prompted riot police to intervene.

The fire broke out later in the evening and tore through the wooden huts of the camp, which houses between 1,000 and 1,500 migrants.

Last week, migrants from Grande-Synthe had tried to block the nearby highway with tree trunks and branches to try to stop the traffic and clamber onto the trucks and cars in the hope of reaching the United Kingdom, across the Channel.”

Just like the three little pigs, if they’d have got to the UK then they would have brick huts.

GW:  Difficult to understand why anyone would burn down those cabins which the French set up.  It looked like a decent well ordered site??????
