France needs to draw up a "civil emergency" plan to give dignified accommodation to thousands of migrants camping out in the northern city of Calais in the hope of crossing the Channel to Britain, the UN said Friday.

"Let's treat that as a civil emergency," Vincent Cochetel, head of the UN refugee agency's Europe division, adding that he believed the emergency was "manageable".
