UK and France reach agreement on Calais policing enhancements

The UK and France have signed an agreement on new measures, including a "control and command centre," to help alleviate the migrant crisis in Calais.
 
The centre will be jointly run by British and French police and will "relentlessly pursue" people-smuggling gangs, Home Secretary Theresa May said after signing the agreement with French  Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve.

She added that she was "well aware" of the risk that Calais security would push illegal migrants elsewhere.
