I tried to fly to London on a fake passport

Hassan left Syria after he was arrested and tortured for protesting against the government - his aim was to reach the UK.

After his dinghy sank in the Mediterranean, people smugglers took him to Paris where he bought a fake passport and a plane ticket to London.
