France and Britain to unveil 'new treaty' on migrants

In response to Mr Macron's comments, the Prime Minister - who has rejected the Norway/Canada choice - repeated her position that Britain would leave the EU's single market after Brexit.

The tough message risked putting a sour note at the end of a meeting created to show the strength of Anglo-French relations, despite the UK's exit from the EU.

Britain is to pledge to send three Chinook helicopters to Mali to offer logistical support for a French counterterrorism operation, while France will contribute troops to British-led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces in Estonia in 2019, Reuters says.

Macron says the Sandhurst Treaty was signed by the two countries' interior ministers at a summit Thursday at Britain's Sandhurst military academy.

"Unaccompanied children on French soil must be given full access to shelter, mental and physical health services, and other basic services such as access to food, water and sanitation", the letter reads. "But it does not mean that the access it will allow will be equivalent to [being] a member of the Single Market". "But it means that you need to contribute to the budget and acknowledge European jurisdiction", Macron warned.

Before the ceremonial welcome, the two leaders enjoyed a working lunch at the Royal Oak pub in Paley Street, in Mrs May's Maidenhead constituency.

Top of the agenda was a new deal to manage the migrant crisis at Calais, the northern French port that acts as a gateway to Britain.

"That border is now one of the most secure in Europe, in a joint operation between Britain and France", the British official said.

The two sides agreed to renew the 2003 Le Touquet deal, which established French border controls in Britain and British controls in Calais.

Aid groups say the more money the United Kingdom spends on security at Calais, the more the migrant crisis will be pushed to other ports along the Channel coast.

US marshal shot, killed while serving warrant
The fatal shooting of a USA marshal in Harrisburg hits close to home for law enforcement authorities in Berks County. Frein was subsequently convicted and sentenced to death for killing a state trooper. "He was the cream of the crop".

The leaders of Britain and France met Thursday against a military backdrop to pledge closer cooperation on defense, security and borders after Britain leaves the European Union. In November, Collomb said there were about 300,000 undocumented migrants in France, and the government registered a record 100,000 asylum claims previous year.

Other commitments include the deployment of three RAF Chinook helicopters in Mali, where French forces are fighting Islamist militants, and France sending more troops to reinforce a British contingent in Estonia on Nato's border with Russian Federation.

The Times newspaper's cartoonist Peter Brookes linked Bayeux and Brexit in his offering in yesterday's edition, which was drawn in the style of the tapestry.

In return, France will send troops to join a UK-led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation battle group in Estonia in 2019, aimed at countering an increasingly assertive Russian Federation.

President Macron is meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May tomorrow at which the offer of the loan of the tapestry, which is in a museum in Bayeux in Normandy, is thought will be made.
