David Cameron: UK to accept 'thousands' more Syrian refugees

4 September 2015 Last updated at 14:07 BST

David Cameron has said the UK will take in "thousands" more Syrian refugees in response to the present crisis.

The refugees will come from UN camps bordering Syria and not from among people already in Europe. The UN says Britain will take 4,000 extra people - a figure not confirmed by Downing Street but Europe still continues to struggle to find a solution to the crisis.

Members of the European Commission have visited the Greek island of Kos, where thousands of migrants have arrived this summer.
