Calais wall 'a waste of taxpayers' money', say hauliers

Work will soon begin to build a wall near Calais' so-called Jungle migrant camp in an effort to stop migrants getting access to vehicles heading to the port.

Dubbed the "Great Wall of Calais" by some media, the 4m (13ft) wall will run for 1km (0.6 miles) along both sides of the main road to the port.

But Rod McKenzie, from the Road Haulage Association, told the BBC Radio 4's World at One that instead of stopping migrants from boarding trucks, it would just "move the problem further down the road".
