The Prime Minister has called on other EU countries to "step up to the plate" and follow Britain's lead by funding refugee camps around Syria.

Mr Cameron said there was a "direct connection" between shortfalls in aid for camps in Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey and the influx of migrants into Europe.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said the UK should be taking it's fair share of refugees during this 'humanitarian crisis' and accused the government of being "disengaged, cold, and irrelevant" when it came to migrant discussions.

He said: "Cameron's chances of winning meaningful concessions ahead of an EU referendum will disappear fast if he makes our country a pariah - turning his back on our neighbours and desperate refugees.

"His actions are not just morally wrong, they are politically foolish."
