Syrian refugees to arrive in UK within days

The first group of Syrian refugees from camps bordering the war-torn country will arrive in Britain within days, Home Secretary Theresa May has told MPs.

The UK is set to take around 20,000 refugees in all.

The announcement came as the Government offered the warship HMS Richmond to patrol off the coast of Libya - targeting criminal gangs involved in trafficking refugees across the Mediterranean.
