David Cameron Says UK Will Take 'Thousands More' Syria Border Camp Refugees

Britain will take "thousands more" refugees from camps on the borders of war-torn Syria, Prime Minister David Cameron has announced.

Speaking during a visit to Portugal, Mr Cameron said he would set out details of the plans next week.

The PM said that Britain was already "providing sanctuary" to around 5,000 refugees from the camps, and had provided around £900 million in aid - more than any other European country.

He said Britain had a "moral responsibility" to help refugees.

But he gave no indication that the UK would be willing to resettle any of the hundreds of thousands of desperate people who have made perilous Mediterranean crossings by boat to reach Europe over the past few months.
