Actress Pamela Anderson has made a surprise visit to a refugee camp in northern France, distributing children's books, food and other supplies.

Anderson's visit to the La Liniere camp outside Dunkirk was preceded by a stop at an aid group's warehouse in Calais, where a huge makeshift camp harbouring thousands of migrants was closed after a forced evacuation in October.

Wearing high heels, Anderson stooped to distribute fruit to children and passed out blankets, gloves and children's books.

La Voix du Nord newspaper quoted her as saying that everyone should see what a camp is like and ask what they can do.

Anderson promotes animal, human and environmental rights.

French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen was refused entry to the La Liniere camp on Tuesday.
