WATCH: Massive brawl breaks out at makeshift migrant camp in Paris

A massive brawl appears to have broken out at a makeshift migrant camp in Paris.

Video footage shows hundreds of people attacking each other with metal bars, planks of wood and other debris near a metro station.

It is thought migrants and "anti-crime protesters" clashed on Thursday night, around 9pm, before police arrived to disperse them.

It is reported that at least four people have been seriously injured in the incident.

Police told local media that the brawl subsided only after gas canisters were fired by police and further incidents occurred later that evening around 11.30pm.

Around 1,000 migrants from Eritrea, Sudan and Afghanistan have set up camp in Paris after the demolition of the Calais ‘Jungle’ camp.
