The worst trouble took place around the camp's makeshift mosque, which the mainly Afghan Muslim residents of the camp had promised to defend "at all costs".
"It is the centre of our camp, and leaving it pains us massively,' said Omar, a 26 year-old originally from Kabul, just before he was arrested by PAF officers.
"The police can try to stop us as much as they like, but nothing will stop us getting to England
,' Omid added.
A copy of a prayer from the Koran which had formed the focal point of the mosque was removed before the operation and handed over to a United Nations representative for safe keeping.
Police had waited until the end of Ramadan at the weekend before moving in
Once all of the migrants and protesters had been moved on beyond the perimeter of the camp, hundreds of officers began a mass clean-up operation, using bulldozers and flame-throwers to destroy all the makeshift buildings.
The squalor of the camp was one of the main reasons for its closure, as well as the crime with which it became associated, including a London journalist being raped in a tent last summer.
The camp had become a magnet for people from all over the world determined to cross the Channel and reach Britain. Once here, they claimed asylum or disappeared into the black economy.
