by Felix Richter,

-- this post authored by Dyfed Loesche

The United Kingdom is financing a wall in the French port town of Calais to prevent migrants from boarding vehicles bound for Great Britain.

According to the Home Office, responsible for guarding the UK's border, construction of the wall near Calais' so-called Jungle migrant camp will begin soon.

Mockingly dubbed the "Great Wall of Calais", the 4m (13ft) high wall will run for only 1km (0.6 miles) along both sides of the main road to Calais port. The wall is complemented by an already existing fence which extends the length to the whole barrier to approximately 5km.
