The UK is to provide resettlement to “thousands” more Syrian refugees in response to the worsening humanitarian crisis, David Cameron has announced.
He said the extra refugees would come from UN camps bordering Syria, and not from among people already in Europe.
Britain would act with its “head and heart”, he said, as he pledged to find long-term solutions to the crisis.
No specific figure has been given but the UN refugee agency said the UK would take a further 4,000 Syrian refugees.
