As France prepares to close down the squalid 'Jungle' migrant camp in the northern port of Calais, Amjad from Pakistan can't wait to get away.

"That's six months they have been telling us that the 'Jungle' is done with... but it never ends," he told AFP.

"Everyone here knows that they will soon have to leave and are wondering what they are going to do," he said. "Me, I'll take the train to Paris."

For the cocktail of languages heard on the dirt streets of the Calais "Jungle" take a dollop of Dari, add a pinch of Amharic and Arabic, and sprinkle liberally with Punjabi, Pashto, Kurdish, Tigrinya and Farsi.

The one language rarely heard among the 7,000-10,000 migrants living in the sprawling camp outside the French Channel port is French, though many of the migrants, most of whom have their hearts set on reaching Britain, have a smattering of English.
