US police have begun clearing what is thought to be the country’s largest homeless encampment, in Silicon Valley.

The network of tents, bunkers and even a tree-house, known as “the Jungle”, was once home to more than 200 people.

Residents of the camp in San Jose, California, were given a 72-hour notice to vacate by early Thursday morning.

Officials believed about 50 people were still living in the camp. Social services are helping find residents alternative accommodation.

There have been no reports of violence or people refusing to leave.
