>> The UK is paying France to stop migrants in Calais reaching trucks bound for Britain. The deal will see a four meter high concrete wall built along a one kilometer long section of the road to the port. The road's right next to the Calais migrant camp known as the jungle, home to nearly 10,000 people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East and Africa.

Trying to get to Britain. It's the scene of regular chaotic attempts by migrants to stop and board trucks before they cross the channel.>> The objective is to protect, first of all, especially have a good drivers for all intrusion attempts by migrants who enter block the roads and climb onto lorries.

And also to protect the local people from completely unacceptable disturbances.>> The new wall's smooth concrete design making it harder to climb on the fences. But fencing off the port and Eurotunnel rail terminal, like high security prisons, didn't stop migrant strying to reach their goal. The authorities hope an extra thousand meters of concrete will.

The wall's expected to be finished by the end of the year.
