Britain is to build a huge wall in Calais to try to stop migrants sneaking across the Channel.
UK taxpayers will foot the £2million bill for the barrier stretching nearly a mile along the main motorway to the port.
Construction will start soon, ministers announced yesterday.
The 13ft concrete wall will replace fencing that has failed to stop stowaways targeting lorries. Before Britain’s vote to leave the EU there was a surge in incursions – mostly from the ‘Jungle’ camp near Calais that houses 10,000 migrants.
