More than 250 people from the Newham Stand Up To Racism campaign gathered to highlight the plight of child refugees.

Lord Alf Dubs and Prof Lesley Morton, who both came to the UK as refugees from the Nazis in 1938, urged the UK government to allow children from the Calais Jungle into the country at Liverpool Street Station on Friday evening.

The demonstration took place at the Kinderstransport statue, which commemorates the rescue of 10,000 Jewish youngsters from the Nazis.

They were joined by east London children with luggage labelled “Calais to UK” and placards that said “Let the children in”.
