Hundreds of migrants are being evicted by riot police from several illegal camps outside the French port of Calais.

Many have been there for months - some trying to smuggle themselves into Britain on trucks.

French authorities say an outbreak of scabies and a lack of running water pose a health risk and therefore the sites need to be cleared.

Paul Adams reports.
