President Macorn’s plan to transform 62 hotels across France into migrant shelters have been met with backlash from officials.

Mayors and police unions slammed the plans over fears towns with smaller populations could be ‘filled with hundreds of single men’.

Mr Macron has vowed to clear migrants of France’s streets by the end of this year and ensure those awaiting asylum are housed and not sleeping rough.

In an bid to alleviate increasing tensions and to halt the creation of new camps following the destruction of the Jungle in Calais last year, all migrants will be offered housing, said President Macron.

While France has received far fewer the asylum applications when compared to Germany, measures by the German government to tighten its asylum procedures in Calais have worried officials in Paris.

They are braced for an influx in immigration from former French colonies in north and west Africa, who co find it more difficult to gain asylum elsewhere.

It comes after more than 40 per cent of France’s population backed extremists on the far Left and Right during the recent presidential election.
