The Calais Jungle migrant camp has been set on fire after hundreds of people were killed in terror attacks on Paris, according to reports.

Some migrants were injured by the blaze which ignited just hours after the French capital was plunged into terror.

One aid worker said: "The details are sketchy at the moment. What we do know is that a number of people in the camps have been injured and we are trying to find medical care for them."

He added: "The refugees are currently being taken to the Ashram centre and women’s shelters while the fires are being put out."

It comes just days after a French politician branded the camp a "lawless slum" where violence is escalating to the point of "guerrilla warfare".

It comes as at least 140 people are reported to have been killed and dozens more injured during a series of attacks across Paris.

The two attackers were killed in a police operation to rescue the hostages at the Bataclan theatre, according to French media.
