Folkestone and Hythe MP Damian Collins says French handling of the Calais crisis has been "shameful"

Folkestone and Hythe MP Damian Collins has branded the way French authorities have handled the Calais crisis as "shameful".

He attacked the French government for being "complicit in allowing migrants to travel to our border".

He then slammed France for not doing enough to move the estimated 3,000 migrants on from the "squalid conditions" in Calais who are living in the "faint hope" of reaching the UK.

His comments come after David Cameron announced during Prime Minister's Questions today, the government is considering providing further investment and resources for the border at Calais.

Mr Cameron this morning met with home secretary Theresa May and transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin to discuss the situation.
