A Belgian woman who invited migrants to set up a makeshift camp in her garden now says she wants them to leave after incidents of aggression and violence.
For nearly two and a half years the Simon-Hody family have allowed migrants wanting to travel to Britain to camp out in their garden in the town of Spy, but now, after a series of incidents, they say they no longer want them there, Sudinfo reports.
The situation in the makeshift camp is said to have deteriorated so much that the family has stopped all aid to the migrants, saying that alcohol and violence led to the camp becoming more and more dangerous by the day, with one family member stating: “We did not feel safe anymore.”

In April, Breitbart London reported on the camp and how many of the neighbours of the family were expressing concern about the presence of the migrants, some going so far as demanding that the police remove them altogether.
Améline, the woman behind the camp, expressed positivity about the site at the time, arguing that while she respected the police they would not be allowed on her private property where up to 100 migrants were staying — although she did note she felt “exhausted”.
