Qadri Fazlullah (R), a migrant from Afghanistan, poses in front of the reception centre in Merignac, a suburb of Bordeaux, southwestern France, where he lives after resettling three months ago from the Calais jungle camp. A tightening of security in Calais makes it difficult to slip through toward Britain, and refugees are being persuaded to apply for asylum in France instead of attempting the perilous journey to Britain, often in the back of trucks.

A migrant stands near a suitcase with his belongings before departing the Calais camp called the "Jungle" to take classes at Lille University, in France. Given that Britain remains a favored destination for many refugees and migrants due to family links, the language they are often more likely to speak than French, and higher prospects of employment, charities say many will still come to Calais even if the Jungle is no more.
