A convoy of aid collected by a charity from the North East will set off today to deliver items to refugees in Calais this weekend.

Support group, North East Solidarity With Calais Refugees, will distribute tents, sleeping bags, food, clothing and toiletries to help the thousands of refugees living in camps around the French port.

Organisers set up the group aiming to send two vans packed with essential supplies, but have been inundated with offers of help.
