Asylum seekers pour into Paris, set up tents on streets as Calais camp closes

The number of asylum-seekers seeking shelter on the streets of Paris has noticeably jumped since the start of the week and the closure of the notorious Calais ‘Jungle’ camp. Some of the boulevards are filled with tents and makeshift shelters.
The majority of migrants are now living in the 18th and 19 districts in the north of Paris near the Stalingrad metro station.
