With the countdown to Christmas underway, a carol-singing-demo was held in Westminster last night demanding the government step up efforts to bring child refugees to Britain.
Almost two months after the so-called Calais jungle camp was demolished, religious leaders, community workers and politicians came together to call for Home Secretary Amber Rudd to honour her pledge to allow 1000 under 18s into the country before Christmas Day.
A Home Office spokesperson said: "We have been working with the French authorities to bring unaccompanied children here since the clearance of the Calais camp in October. More than 750 children have arrived so far. More eligible children will be transferred from Europe, in line with the terms of the Immigration Act, in the coming months.”
