Supporters of a south London football club have rallied together donating mounds of supplies for refugees camped in Calais.

Dulwich Hamlet Football Club collected the items before the team's game.

Queues of people carrying everything from food and clothes to tents and guitars wound around the club's ground and halfway up the next street.

A banner reading "refugees welcome" was hung above the drop-off point.

Organisers from the club's supporters' trust plan to rent several vehicles to take the supplies to Calais next month.

I thought I'd probably get a car-load of stuff, I think there's been a minivan, there's been several car-loads of donations - it's incredible.
