>After Sangatte Hits Current TV

>December 2007 saw myself, photojournalist Guy Smallman and journalist Simon Assaf take a short trip to Calais in France, to report on the growing refugee crisis five years after the closure of the Red Cross Sangatte refugee camp.

After Sangatte, The 15-minute film that followed the disturbing scenes we found that cold and freezing pre-Christmas day has now been posted to Current TV.
