The number of refugees from Syria who have been resettled in Wales has reached 397, according to new figures from the Home Office.

Conwy and Denbighshire became the latest local authority areas to resettle refugees under the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme.

Oxfam Cymru have welcomed the figures, adding that for many in Syria the situation remains "desperate".

We welcome the fact that local authorities in Wales are continuing to play their part in this effort, welcoming many more refugees to communities right across the country.
