French immigration affects Europe's last gypsy circus.

France continues to expel Roma gypsies living in the country illegally despite the European Union and the UN expressing strong disapproval.

Around 1000 have been forced to leave so far and President Nicolas Sarkozy says his country is well within its rights to expel those who cannot support themselves.

But what about those who are earning money to live?

The crackdown could force Europe's last gypsy circus to pull down the big top forever.
