A hundred Syrian refugees are to be welcomed into Peterborough between now and 2020.

The city council has agreed to resettle five families a year for the next five years as part of a wider government pledge to accept 20,000 people forced from their homes.

The first groups - usually made up of two adults and two children - will arrive in Peterborough this autumn.

"The government has confirmed that we will receive appropriate levels of funding for these families. That means that we can be sure that we're offering them the help that they need and over the next few months we will be making appropriate arrangements to prepare for their arrival.

"This city has a long and proud history ​of welcoming those that need our help and we will be working with groups from across our community that have already offered their assistance."

– Cllr John Holdich, leader, Peterborough City Council.
