Hackney friends travel to Calais to help migrants

Two friends from Hackney have travelled to Calais to help the thousands of people from the so-called Jungle refugee camp. 

Libby Freeman and Paul Lane were moved by reports of the conditions for those in the camp, so set up a crowd funding scheme.

Over the last several weeks many of those living in the camp have repeatedly tried to come into the UK via cross channel terminals and ports.
