French and British police have set up a command and control center in Calais, France to target organized gangs who smuggle migrants from Africa further into Europe and into the UK.

As CCTV’s Richard Bestic reports from Calais, the port town is at the center of a crisis, where thousands of migrants are camped out in squalid conditions as they attempt to make their way to the United Kingdom.
