International Development Secretary Justine Greening told Daybreak the money will be focused on the children in Unicef-run refugee camps in Iraq.

Ms Greening said: "This money will first of all help provide safe zones for them so we can actually make sure they are being taken care of, secondly trauma support and counselling, and where they have medical needs they need to get care for that as well."
