>> The Calais jungle this time last Saturday. A bustling high street of kiosks and cafes, its residents still determined to get to the UK. One week later the change is stark. I'm Reuter's reporter Alex Fraser in Calais. And this is what remains of the jungle. These structures here were home to more than 7000 migrants.

Now the French authorities have moved the majority, and a few are left here in the rubble. While the authorities attempt to clean up this barren wasteland, that was formally a home for all these people. But where has everyone gone? Most are arriving in reception centers across France. 1500 are living in these container boxes waiting to processed, while France and Britain squabble over how to divide that number.

In Paris, tents are springing up in the streets. Authorities say the number of migrants here has shot up by at least a third. And some didn't even get that far. Aide groups say hundreds if not thousands more migrants may have fled into the peripheries of the jungle. In the town's bars, local residents don't think the destruction of the camp will stop the port continuing as a hub for migrants.

But many people expect the migrants will return when the police presence subsides.
