'Hundreds' of migrants evicted from illegal Calais camps

Hundreds of migrants are being evicted by riot police from several illegal camps outside the French port of Calais.

Many have been there for months - some trying to smuggle themselves into Britain on trucks.

French authorities say an outbreak of scabies and a lack of running water pose a health risk and therefore the sites need to be cleared.

Paul Adams reports.
