Britain vowed Thursday to increase its funding to deal with migrants camped out around the northern French port of Calais and
trying to cross the Channel.
Home Minister Theresa May met her French counterpart Bernard Cazeneuve in Paris to discuss the issue which has created friction across the Channel.
“Taking into account the worsening migration crisis in the Mediterranean and the repercussions on Calais, where 3,000 migrants are currently based, the two ministers decided to reinforce their cooperation,” a joint statement issued after the meeting said.
