French Mayor Convicted for Harassing Migrant Helpers

A mayor in northern France was handed a six-month suspended prison sentence on Tuesday for wrongly issuing parking fines to people helping migrants in the area. The northern Channel coast has long been a magnet for refugees and migrants who gather there hoping to board trucks and ferries heading to Britain, leading to complaints from locals about the effect on business and the image of the area.
