Jungle camp in Calais
Last week the French government cleared an unofficial camp, used by migrants trying to cross into Britain from Calais. Known as 'the Jungle' it housed hundreds of migrants living in terrible sanitary conditions. A familiar face in the Jungle was volunteer Sylvie Copyans. She provided a daily hot meal to refugees in Calais. She tells Matthew Bannister why many of the migrants evicted from the camp are already coming back.

Daniel Suelo gave up money in the year 2000. He now lives mostly in a cave in Utah, eating food he finds growing wild or scavenging in dustbins. He also writes a blog about his lifestyle. He tells Matthew Bannister why he thinks everyone on the planet should take only what they need.
