Migrants queue for food handouts in Calais

An increasing number of migrants are arriving in Calais, northern France, in the hope of entering the UK.

Every day at 18:00 local time, many of of them gather in long, snaking queues in a car park in central Calais to get a free meal from a local charity.

For many, it will be the only meal they eat all day, as the BBC's Darius Bazargan reports.

Our World: Calais - The Final Frontier is broadcast on Saturday 31 January at 11:30 GMT on BBC World News and 21:30 GMT on the BBC News Channel.
