These camps were an awful blott on the landscape in Calais. They have spent a lot of money on the town there recently, the town centre has been redesigned, refurbished, re laid out and so on, with a whole new array of fountains added in the centre square. I haven't seen these as yet myself but saw some of ColetteB's pictures. it all looks good and clean...so the camps were a terrible counterpoint to the progress. They were all strewn out along the banks of the river/canal there too just following the launch of the new Riverbus... I remember Ed brought us a picture of that one. Not a very edible sight taking your tour through the massed camps of hungry unwashed unfortunate immigrants. What's to be done with them though I just don't know...
