Police in Paris on Tuesday evacuated the last big migrants’ tent camp in the capital

Police in Paris on Tuesday evacuated the last big migrants’ tent camp in the capital, an official said.

The operation came after several previous clearances over recent months that have seen more than 3,000 migrants brought to temporary accommodation.

Regional authorities said 427 people were accommodated after Tuesday’s evacuation.

Migrants’ tent camps have repeatedly sprung up around northern Paris in recent years, especially since a large informal camp in the English Channel port town of Calais was dismantled in 2016.

Police said that they had so far carried out dozens of evacuations since November, and were determined to stop the Paris camps being re-established, as was previously the case.

The inhabitants of the camps include asylum-seekers, migrants refused asylum in other European countries and refugees who had been granted asylum in France but unable to find housing.

The Paris Socialist Mayor, Anne Hidalgo, who was running for re-election in March, had repeatedly accused President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist government of not fulfilling its responsibility to provide housing for asylum seekers and refugees.
