18 Aerial Photos That Show What Remains Of The Calais "Jungle"

Pictures taken from a helicopter reveal what is left of the former refugee and migrant camp.

On 24 October French authorities moved in to clear the Calais camp known as the “Jungle”, removing and processing 7,000 refugees and migrants amid some clashes involving riot police.

The people in the camp were moved to 450 immigration centres across France. The Jungle's destruction followed the arrival of the first refugee children in the UK the week before.

Aerial photos taken on 1 November show the current state of the site, after authorities dismantled most of the structures.
