Great Wall of Calais… Britain is set to build a 13ft-high wall to stop migrants at the Jungle camp getting into the UK
It will stretch for one kilometre along the main motorway to the port in northern France.

The £1.9 million concrete barrier first revealed in July will be erected at nearly four metres tall – replacing barbed wire.

It is being built as part of a £17m package of measures.

Road hauliers called the wall a “poor use” of public money – with many calling for funds to be used on soldiers patrolling the area instead.

But Home Secretary Amber Rudd told MPs that while the UK provided money to help secure Calais, it was up to the French to decide which measures to use.

Immigration Minister Mr Goodwill recently told the Commons’ Home Affairs Select Committee: “The security that we are putting in at the port is being stepped up with better equipment.

“We are going to start building this big new wall very soon. We’ve done the fence, now we are doing a wall.”

Construction of the new wall is due to be completed by the end of the year.

A number of fences are currently in place to protect the port, the Eurotunnel terminal and train tracks on the other side of Calais.

It is not thought the fence will replace any of those measures.
