More than 1,600 migrants were bussed to new shelters across France. France maintains it is  closing the camp for humanitarian reasons and to end the stateless limbo for thousands of migrants, many of them have made unsuccessful attempts to cross the channel. The camp also has become a glaring symbol of Europe's struggle to cope with a massive influx of migrants and refugees since last year, many from war-torn places such as Syria and Afghanistan.

Auckland Botanic Gardens

When we go to the Auckland Botanic Gardens, I would like to see the Native Forest. The reason why I want to see the Native Forest is because I want to experience more about the Native stuffs and especially as I was reading about the Native Forest I heard that there were beautiful nikau palm, tree fern groves and listen to the calls and songs of the busy Native Birds, That is why I want to see the Native Forest.

'Killer clown' with huge knife caught on chilling CCTV footage trying to enter family home

Blade wielding clown attempts to break into house at 2am

CCTV footage has captured the moment a 'killer clown' armed with a huge knife tries to enter a family home - through front door. The surveillance cameras, appear to be recording the scenes at around 2.30am this morning and show a figure dressed as a clown walking up to the door and trying the handle. Wearing a face full of white make-up and an orange wig, the clown realises the door and then makes his way around to the side of the house, still holding the knife in his hand. He opens the back gate, and attempts to open several doors surrounding the property. This happened in the United Kingdom.
