• Calais migrant situation ‘very concerning’: Cameron


    SINGAPORE: British Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday expressed concern over an attempt by an estimated 2,000 migrants to enter Britain from the French port town of Calais via the Eurotunnel. “This is very concerning,” he told reporters during a visit to Singapore, adding that “we are working very closely” with French authorities to address the situation. He added that Home Secretary Theresa May would chair a meeting of the government’s Cobra emergency committee to discuss the incident, which occurred on Tuesday. The Eurotunnel company itself is seeking 9.7 million euros ($10.67 million) from the British and French governments in compensation for disruption caused by illegal migrants.
