'I'm ashamed of Europe over refugee crisis'

Refugees who fled the Nazis on the eve of World War Two are calling on the government to do more to get children out of the migrant camp at Calais, France.

Hundreds of unaccompanied children are living in what is termed the "Jungle", and charities say they are at serious risk of harm and death because the government isn't moving quickly enough to assess their asylum claims.

The Victoria Derbyshire programme had exclusive access as two former Jewish refugees, Labour peer Lord Dubs and Rabbi Harry Jacobi - who came to Britain as children in the 1930 - travelled to France to meet the children stuck in Calais.

Dominic Casciani reports.

Watch the Victoria Derbyshire programme on weekdays between 09:00 and 11:00 on BBC Two and the BBC News Channel.
