A bulldozer continues to clear 'The Jungle' migrant camp adjacent to a ferry terminal to the UK on September 23, 2009 in Calais, France. The migrant camp known as 'The Jungle', which was largely populated by Afghan migrants attempting to make their way to the UK, was destroyed by French immigration yesterday. French authorities detained around 300 migrants at the camp although it is estimated that up to 1,000 migrants fled the camp before its destruction. British Home Secretary Alan Johnson yesterday denied speculation that the UK would be forced to grant asylum from the camp's former residents.
