>> In the woods and dunes around Calais 4 to 600 migrant sleep rough without running water or toilets. The French government closed down the camp known as the Jungle, eight months ago. But migrants are trickling back to the northern port city dodging police armed with battens and tear gas and awaiting any chance to attempt to crossing to the UK.
Many were moved from the jungle to reception centers but were disillusioned with the slow pace of bureaucracy.>> It's not good to sleep alone, so we form groups and some people sleep in the forest. Some people sleep on top of the hill. Because there are racist people here.
If they find two or three refugees. They have knives, they have guns. They'll just beat you.>>
> France's Interior Minister has rejected charities' demands for a new reception center in Calais, and vowed to deploy riot police to contain the influx. Charities are giving out food, clothes, and water where they can, but say police move them on.
Reuters Matthias Blamont went to Calais.>> Of course living conditions in the previous jungle were described as very difficult. But it was an established camp, an organized area with some kind of medical presence, distribution of meals, and some possibilities to socialize. This time, the government doesn't want any permanent settlements.
So that means the migrants, on their own, living in and around the bushes, ends up making living conditions for his house.>> It's a haphazard affair without official backing. And charities expect numbers to surge in the coming weeks as summer kicks in and the weather improves.
