Brexit: France threatens to send Calais migrants to UK after historic EU Leave vote
THE mayor of Calais has threatened to send the “migrant jungle” camp across the Channel to Dover after Brits voted to leave the European Union.
Brexit has sent shockwaves across the globe.
The Prime Minister has resigned, Jeremy Corbyn could be on the brink of losing his job and Nicola Sturgeon has called for a second referendum on Scottish independence.
And there some who believe we could see a snap general election amid the confusion.
But the implications of yesterday’s vote might not stop there.
Natacha Bouchard, the mayor of Calais, has urged the French government to force the British to “take on the consequences of their choice”.
Britain and France are bound by the Tourquet agreement – a treaty which allows British border police and officials to operate in French ports.
Their job is to catch migrants attempting to stow away on trucks and lorries in their bid to make it to the UK.
But removing them from the transport hub could allow thousands to cross unmonitored and effectively move the infamous “jungle” to Dover.
