UK: Calais children look older because of war
It seems the UK is doing the exact thing as Sweden, allowing itself to be "fooled" by migrants' alleged age, and it is also just as obvious in England as in Sweden.

Migrant 'children' arriving in Britain from Calais to critics claiming they look 'old enough to be adults' may appear older 'because war has toughened them up', the Home Office claims.

The second wave of 'child' migrants from the Jungle Camp arrived in Britain at lunchtime today with 300 more set to follow in their footsteps in the coming week.

Refugees, who the Government claims are aged 14 to 17, arrived at the UK Visas and Immigration office in Croydon, south London, by coach as part of a fast-track system to move youngsters from the French migrant camp before it is demolished.

Some waved to the waiting cameras as they stepped off the packed bus before being escorted into the main building by UK border enforcement officers.
The youngsters, from war-torn countries including Syria and Sudan, join the 14 that arrived at the immigration centre yesterday.

They are entitled to move to the UK under EU asylum law due to their family ties to those already in the UK - and 300 more are expected to arrive in the coming days.
It comes as critics claim some of the 'children' arriving look older than their teenage years, and warned that some adults may be posing as children to abuse the scheme.

After photographs of the refugees arriving were published, Conservative MP David Davies wrote on Twitter: 'These don't look like 'children' to me. I hope British hospitality is not being abused.'

Meanwhile, Iain McGregor wrote: 'Does the British Foreign Office think we are stupid? I was expecting kids under the age of 16, not over the age of 21.'

Another added: 'When I read child migrants I thought it was youngsters. These are young men!!'. And David Moore said: 'Lie about your age and you get a ride into the land of milk and honey. Don't think they will be asked for ID at the pub.'
