French demolition teams have begun dismantling huts with hammers in part of the Calais migrant camp known as the Jungle.
They seem to be leaving inhabited huts intact as they move through the camp’s southern sector.
Police later fired tear gas after migrants began throwing stones inside the camp. A water cannon was also used to extinguish a fire in one of the shacks.
The government plans to relocate migrants to reception centres.
Those living in the camp, mainly from the Middle East, Afghanistan and Africa, hope to cross the English Channel to reach the UK.
