MailOnline has learned that migrants who were forced from Dunkirk by French police set up an alternative camp in the field.

Some others set up their tents within a half mile of their destroyed camp in order to continue their dream to get on board a boat to the UK.

The camp, which was built on abandoned industrial land, was crowded and home to over 1,500 migrants. However it was shut down by Grand-Synthe Police near Dunkirk.

The camp residents were offered the chance to travel by coach from France to shelters. This was in exchange for going through French asylum process.

They refused to take the offer as they were afraid it would affect their long-term goals to travel to the UK.

Today small numbers of migrants returned to the camp in their original form and broke through security fences put up by police as a last-ditch effort to secure the area.

MailOnline saw the pathetic scenes of ex-camp residents digging through rubbish and piles left over from mass eviction. 

Many migrants packed up their clothing and bedding into shopping carts, which they took with them to their new camp.

To fuel their campfires, others took pallets of construction materials and made other items from the flattened shelters.

Most migrants, including those with families and children, had to travel only a few kilometers to reach their new homes in the fields next to their camp.

Kazhal Rzgar from Iraq was 46 years old. Her daughters Hadya (22 and Hasta) were seven and eight respectively. Hasta was also there along with her sons, who pitched their tent in the corner of the field.

Most of these migrants, including those with families and children, had only to travel a short distance to get to their new place in the field near their former camp.

Kazkal's son Mubin, 16, (pictured) said: 'We are staying here because we want to come to England. We think England is so nice. You can get a job, go to school and have good weather.'

Kazkal’s 16 year old son Mubin stated that they are here to visit England. England seems so beautiful to us. It is possible to get a job and go to school while enjoying the great weather.

Migrants carry belongings and tents from Grande Synthe migrant camp to a field next door where they will set up camp

The migrants carry their belongings and tents to Grande Synthe, migrant camp. They will then set up camp in a nearby field.

Mubin, Mubin’s 16-year-old son said “We are staying here because it is England we desire.” England is so lovely, we think. It is possible to get a job and go to school while enjoying the great weather.

Mubin acknowledged that his family paid so much to people smugglers in order to get to Europe. However, he wouldn’t say exactly how much.

Five months ago, his family took him to Darbandikhan, Kurdish-administrated Iraq. They wanted to move to the UK so they can start a new life.

Mubin stated, “It’s hard living here in cold and rain without any toilets or money. When I reach England, however, I plan to attend school to become a barber.

“France is great, but France doesn’t appeal to my mom. It is difficult to understand the language. English is much easier, and there are family members in Birmingham.

His family would have to borrow at least 2500 euros each in order to rent a boat over the English Channel.

Mubin stated, “It is very dangerous to be on the boat. However, we need to get out.”

Hadya was a Kurdish student who used to be an artist. The people are poor. England is a great place to live. Everything is great when you have your own home.

“When I reach there, I would like to act in a movie as an actor or artist.”

Residents of the camp were given the option of being taken by coach to shelters across France in return for going through the French process for asylum seekers. Pictured: A man sets up a tent in the new field

Harem is a 28 year old Accounting student. He also pitched his tent in the field. Although you have to purchase a boat, I do not have the money.

He said that the camp life was difficult and that they lived like monkeys. All he had to do was tell everyone to go. They took all my food, and destroyed it.

Harem claimed that eight years of work as a builder had helped him save money to cover his trip to Irbil, the Kurdish capital.

The man flew first to Dubai then to Belarus, then he crossed to Poland’s border and caught the train to Germany. This was part of a Kurdistan travel package.

He claimed that the 1,050 euro he was carrying had been stolen by corrupt Polish border patrols to get him entry into Poland.

He stated that he was an economically migrant.

Police operation in the Jungle of Grande-Synthe in March, when the camp numbered in the hundreds and not the thousands

Operation by police in the Jungle at Grande-Synthe, March. The camp was in its hundreds not in their thousands.

After trebling its size, the camp was renamed the “New Jungle” in honor of the famous Jungle Camp in Calais that closed in 2017.

The camp was managed, it is thought, by groups of people traffickers.

French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin ordered that the building be closed.

Priti Patel (British counterpart) spoke about migrants crossing the Channel.

His office maintained that Tuesday’s clearance wasn’t a result of the phone call between politicians and was pre-planned.
