New fears for 1,000 lone children in Calais refugee camp
French authorities hope Britain will honour pledges and rescue minors when the bulldozers move in
Up to 1,000 unaccompanied minors will be left to fend for themselves when the so-called jungle camp for #refugees in #Calais is bulldozed next month. The French authorities have made no plans to rehouse the children, the Observer has learned, because it is hoping to force Britain to honour a promise to help child refugees.
The French interior ministry has informed charities and aid organisations that it intends to destroy the camp in less than four weeks.
