Migrants hopeful of reaching Dover enter third week of hunger strike

Migrants in Calais have entered the third week of a hunger strike demanding better conditions in the French port, from where many attempt to reach Dover.

Some have threatened to set themselves on fire if their demands on the British and French governments are not met.

About 800 migrants were dispersed when illegal camps in the French port were destroyed last month but many now occupy a food distribution centre.
