Teenage refugee reunited with father after 10 years apart

A teenage refugee, who had been living in the Calais jungle, has been reunited with his father after 10 years apart. Shamsher Sherin, 13, said he was "very happy" to see his father again.

He was among dozens of child migrants brought to the UK on Wednesday.

His father Hazrat Gul Sherin fled Afghanistan in 2005 and now lives in Alum Rock in Birmingham. He said seeing his son again was like a dream.
