First migrant children arrive after EU reforms on asylum

Four migrant children will arrive in the UK from Calais this morning, after being allowed to stay with their families here while their asylum claims are assessed.

The teenagers are from Syria and Afghanistan, and are among the first to arrive under newly-enforced EU laws.

The charity Citizens UK is calling for the government to do more to help other children in similar situations.

Jon Ironmonger reports.
