Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said the UK should be taking it's fair share of refugees during this 'humanitarian crisis' and accused the government of being "disengaged, cold, and irrelevant" when it came to migrant discussions.

He said: "Cameron's chances of winning meaningful concessions ahead of an EU referendum will disappear fast if he makes our country a pariah - turning his back on our neighbours and desperate refugees.

"His actions are not just morally wrong, they are politically foolish."
