A block of portable toilets was set ablaze on the road leading to the nearby ferry terminal.
Within hours, 60 buses are set to transport 3,000 migrants to reception centres scattered around France.
By week’s end, the camp is to be emptied of an estimated 6,500 migrants and destroyed.

The French authorities have warned of further violence with the reported arrival in the camp of over 150 far-left militants.
