Family flee war-torn Syria for Yorkshire sanctuary

The Yorkshire region is to take in 1,500 refugees, who are fleeing the war in Syria, over the next few years with 21 local councils agreeing to help.

It is part of what the government has described as our "moral responsibility" to those living in camps on the border with the war-torn country.

Around 100 have already arrived and our correspondent Katie Oscroft has been to see one Syrian family who are settling in to life in the Calendar region.
