A camp housing 1,500 migrants in northern France has been destroyed in a fire that officials said began during a fight.

At least 10 people were injured when the fire tore through closely-packed huts at the Grande-Synthe camp, near the port of Dunkirk.

Last month, officials said the camp would be dismantled because of unrest.
