Hungarian Police have blocked the entrance to Budapest train station for a second day as part of efforts to stop thousands of refugees and economic migrants from boarding trains to Germany.

This morning, migrants chanting "Germany, Germany" began to gather outside the station buildings, joining hundreds more in what is becoming a transit zone for those fleeing conflict in the middle east and Africa.

Around 3,000 migrants are at Keleti station in the Hungarian capital. Police say that "citizen patrols" are helping them keep order in the area.
