Dozens of migrants are reaching Britain from northern France every week despite official claims that the crisis ended with the evacuation of the Jungle camp in Calais a year ago.

Up to 100 migrants arrive in Calais and Dunkirk each week and a similar number made it across the channel to Britain, according to Christian Salomé, chairman of L’Auberge des Migrants, a Calais charity.

Other charity workers estimated the figure to be nearer 50, although all agree that French government claims to have stopped cross-channel migration altogether are unfounded.

A few migrants reach Britain under their own steam by stowing away in lorries, while others pay smuggling gangs fees of about €3,000 a person to get across.
