In the UK the situation at the border is increasingly regarded as a problem in which is involved the responsibility of the government and the society.

Last July, the Committee of the of Human Rights, which gathers lawyers from England and Wales, published a report made on a study mission in Calais and Grande-Synthe .

It uses as well datas given by Doctors Without Borders on 114 medical consultations following violence recorded by the NGO form 21 December 2015 to 19 February 2016, 98 were due to police violence, 11 from other people outside the slum, 5 related to violence inside the camp.

The report therefore focuses extensively on police violence before studying how the police fails in its mission to protect the migrants against further violence and the difficulties of access to justice and information about rights.
