French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve and his British counterpart Theresa May signed a deal on Thursday to set up a joint crisis centre aimed at tackling people smugglers in Calais.

Under the agreement, seen by AFP, a second facility will also be built near the entrance to the Channel Tunnel to reduce nightly break-in attempts by migrants.

Britain will also provide 10 million euros ($11.2 million) over two years to speed up asylum applications and boost humanitarian aid.
