The MAYOR of Calais has threatened to send the migrant Jungle camp across the Channel to Dover by backing out of the Le Touquet treaty. Natacha Bouchart has urged the French government to immediately begin renegotiating the treaty, which allows British border police and officials to operate in the French port. These officers frequently catch migrants attempting to stow away on trucks and lorries in order to make it through the Chunnel to Britain. Removing them from the transport hub could result in huge numbers of unmonitored people making their way to Dover, where a new camp could emerge. Earlier this year, a Calais-based French politician made a similar threat, claiming a vote for Brexit should negate the current agreement. Xavier Bertrand, president of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais-Picardie region, said: “If Britain leaves Europe, right away the border will leave Calais and go to Dover.
