French authorities are expected to begin demolishing the "Jungle" migrant camp in Calais in the coming hours, as more residents prepare to board coaches bound for other areas of France.

More than 2,300 people were bussed away to reception centres on Monday.

Migrants had queued peacefully to be processed, but there are concerns some will refuse to go because they still want to get to the UK.

Some 7,000-8,000 people have been living there in squalid conditions.

The demolition of the camp is a sign from the French government to the people of Calais that their concerns are being taken seriously.
