Ian Shaw: Putting up fences will not solve the refugee crisis

Ian Shaw is a favourite on the London jazz scene, but in recent months his efforts have been focused across the Channel.

The singer has been regularly travelling to refugee camps in Calais to build shelters and take supplies to those in need.

Now he's also organising a series of fundraising shows with the help of Rory Bremner and Julian Clary in the hope of continuing his work in France.
