Lambing with Refugees

Caz Graham meets a group of refugees from an English language class in Leeds, who are experiencing life on a sheep farm.

A group of refugees from Leeds visit a sheep farm in the Yorkshire Dales, where the farmer is just coming to the end of lambing. He's busy sorting out his new-born flock on the hillside, and the visitors help out with tagging the animals. It's a far cry from the life they are used to - normally they meet at an English language class run by a charity in urban Leeds. For some, it's their first experience of the English countryside. Caz Graham goes to join them, and finds out what they make of life on the farm.
