Celebrating Refugee Week in Nottingham

Duration: 01:31

Nottingham's melting pot of asylum seekers have been celebrated in Congolese style for the launch of Refugee Week, which runs from June 17th- 23rd. Far from the negative image of isolation and unwillingness to fit in, some of the city's new residents spoke openly to BBC Nottingham's Reya El-Salahi about their new life in the region.
