Mrs May praised the "uniquely close relationship" between the two nations.

The money will be spent on fencing, security cameras and other technology to prevent migrants stowing away on lorries to try to reach Britain.

France's Elysée Palace announced on Wednesday that a new treaty would be signed on Thursday aimed at providing a solution to the migrant crisis at Calais and how to best deal with the refugees hoping to head to Britain.

The UK will contribute £44 million towards the border at Calais.

On top of the deal, Britain is also thought to be prepared to take in more migrant children from Calais, according to the BBC.

Commitments will be made to a 10,000-strong Franco-Anglo combined joint expeditionary force to be ready by 2020.

And the prime minister said a multi-million pound deal to build 36 A380 passenger aircraft for Emirates Airlines had been signed by Airbus, which has plants in France and the UK.

"What we are doing is working with the French authorities and providing support to ensure that we enhance the security of our border", May said of the decision.

Llewellyn said the management of the border was a "shared problem" between the two countries.

May said Britain would not be a full member of the European Union single market after leaving the bloc, but was seeking a "comprehensive" free trade deal. "It is very much in our interest that the border remain secure". "Be my guest, but that means financial contributions and accepting European jurisdiction". "That is an advantage not just for the United Kingdom, it's actually good for Europe and good for the global financial system", she argued. The photo was posted on Twitter by the Foreign Secretary with the caption: 'En marche! "Should the Channel Tunnel be just a first step?"

Brexit could be discussed on Mr Macron's first visit as president but talks are expected to focus on the bilateral UK-France relationship.

The British military will send helicopters and personnel for France's military mission against Islamic militants in the Sahel region of Africa.

The 15-year-old Treaty of Le Touquet between France and Britain on migration controls has resulted in massive bottlenecks of migrants stranded on the French side of the border. We have agreed that UK-France co-operation remains critical to European defence and that together we will continue to play a full role to improve the security of the continent.

Should the loan go ahead, it is still unconfirmed as to which British venue would exhibit the tapestry, though the British Museum has said that it would be "honoured and delighted" to display it.

Theresa May and Emmanuel Macron.

At present there appears to be no move to have the tapestry north of the border.

The Times newspaper's cartoonist Peter Brookes linked Bayeux and Brexit in his offering in yesterday's edition, which was drawn in the style of the tapestry. But Brexit still threatens to overshadow all this bonhomie. The two sides were expected to commit to joint military operations, including a combined expeditionary force.
