'France will this week urge Britain to take in more migrants and pay a larger cost towards policing them as part of a revision of the so-called Le Touquet agreement.
It was in 2003 that Prime Minister Tony Blair and President Jacques Chirac signed the historic document that revolutionised border controls in Channel ports.
It meant moving the French frontier to the south coast of England, and the UK frontier to northern France.
But with Brexit approaching, and the number of Britain-bound asylum seekers in ports such as Calais growing, the French want Le Touquet to be updated.
Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said today that reform would include Britain sharing more costs and taking in greater numbers of migrants.
'I want to reach an additional protocol to these agreements and to take concrete measures to look after a certain number of costs by the British,' Mr Collomb said in an interview with Paris newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche.
Mr Collomb also said the British should 'take concrete measures' to take on 'a larger number of people, as regards to the reception of refugees and unaccompanied minors.''
