Muslims migrants pray in the Calais "Jungle"
French police arrested 14 people on a far-right anti-migrant demonstration in Calais on Saturday morning. The protesters, who had not notified the authorities of their plan, blocked two bridges, set fire to tyres and brandished banners telling foreigners to "Go home".
CRS riot police stopped the unauthorised demonstration almost as soon as it began and had broken it up by 9.00am, officials said.
About 80 activists from the far-right group Génération Identitaire blocked two bridges, burnt tyres and let off teargas, police said.
