A 15ft structure has been erected outside a home office building ahead of the latest arrival of child refugees from Calais to London.
White sheeting was put up in front of scaffolding in order to screen any arrivals from waiting photographers after many of the first arrivals appeared to be older than they claimed.
Yesterday another 14 migrants arrived in Croydon, with half demanding not to be photographed and many covering their faces with blankets. Today, around half a dozen construction workers built the structure with an employee confirming it was a last minute job, organised this morning.
The structure reached around the area where all previous coaches from Calais have stopped outside Lunar House, the Home Office building where migrants are interviewed.
An employee from the scaffolding firm, who didn’t wish to be named, said: “All I know is that it was a last minute job.
“We were called up quite early this morning.
“I don’t know what it is or who called us.”
