Refugee charity calls for more visas for refugees

The founder of the Refugee Crisis Charity Care4Calais calls for more refugees to be given visas. Clare Mosely says that with a visa, migrants won't feel the need to "get in a small boat" and risk their lives crossing the Channel and that if the UK provided refugees with an alternative, "they would take it". This comes as the numbers of people crossing the Channel illegally this week reached 1000 for the first time this year.
