EU migrants crisis: Lorry protest causes Calais disruption

Traffic has been brought to a near-standstill in and around the northern French town of Calais, where protesters are demanding the closure of a migrant camp known as "The Jungle".

The French government has promised to shut The Jungle, but hauliers are demanding a date for that to happen - something the authorities have yet to reveal.

More than 9,000 people live there in squalid conditions. Residents say that is disrupting life in Calais.
