Britain presses France to halt ‘unacceptable’ migrant crossings

Migrants stand near a highway overpass near the makeshift camp called “The New Jungle” in Calais, France, August 19, 2015. The French interior minister and his British counterpart visit Calais on Thursday to sign a new Franco-British agreement on bilateral migratory policies. Calais remains an open wound between the two countries with more than than 3000 migrants trying to scale fences and cross the Channel Tunnel to reach Britain. REUTERS/Regis Duvignau
