Hundreds of migrants and refugees children in France are stranded after the British government announced it will no longer re-settle unaccompanied children.. CGTN’s Kate Parkinson reports.

The makeshift shelters have been abandoned now, but there are clear signs that refugees are sleeping rough in the woods around Calais.

There is one official camp in northern France about a 30 minutes’ drive along the coast from Calais. But they only have space here for around 1,500 people and the camp is full.

Officials said lately more and more unaccompanied minors have been arriving and that it’s hard to keep track of them.

With the U.K. recently scrapping its scheme to take in 3,000 unaccompanied child refugees, some are trying more dangerous ways to get there.
