Poll: Is David Cameron right to say we will take more refugees?

A Syrian refugee living in Coventry has told ITV News that the UK needs to take action to help migrants fleeing their homeland.

Abdulmunen Radwan was working as a lawyer in the city of Homs, but was forced to cross into Jordan when he and his family were subjected to constant shelling. They were granted asylum in the UK, and Abdulmunen now works with other refugees at a support centre in Coventry.

Today, the Prime Minister has vowed that Britain will take in "thousands more" Syrian refugees from camps on Syria's border, following growing pressure at home and abroad for the government to do more to help in the refugee crisis.

Katie Hopkins has hit out at Birmingham in her weekly Sun column this week, saying New Street station is her idea of hell.

The controversial TV personality wrote:

This week I had to go to Birmingham.

I make a point of never going there.

People say karma will get me in the end. If it does, I feel pretty sure my hell will look like Birmingham New Street railway station at 5pm ... An endless circle up and down the crowded escalator, just off platform 2.
