This is an emerging story which needs expansion if you wish to EDIT to add information or discuss it in TALK.

Theresa May is due to announce that Britain will pay £44.5m to France for additional security measures in order to prevent another refugee camp forming in Calais, or any other French port (The Guardian).

President Emmanuel Macron is arriving in the UK to meet with the British Prime Minister and discuss security and policing in Calais. Summit organisers also hope it will reinforce Anglo-French relations in the wake of Brexit(Financial Times). 

The new security agreement could strengthen the existing Le Touquet accord of 2003, whereby British border checks are carried out in France.

There are currently around 1,000 refugees living in Calais, including at least 70 unaccompanied children.
