Jude Law: Child refugees in Calais ‘jungle’ should be brought to UK – VIDEO

Jude Law

Actor Jude Law has urged the UK Government to let children living in the ”Jungle” migrant camp in Calais come to Britain if they have relatives there.

The star of “The Talented Mr Ripley” visited the camp on Sunday to highlight the plight of people living in the soon-to-be demolished facility.

Speaking to the BBC’s Joe Inwood, Mr Law described Calais camp as a ”dangerous” place for children.

The situation seems crazy, the children need to be looked after, he said, adding that the children who have guardians in the UK should be allowed to be reunited with those guardians.

He stressed that the authorities should get the children out of the camps. “It’s our responsibility as humans to look after our children. The children at the camp in Calais need us. It isn’t a big ask. It is simply the right thing to do,” Mr Law said.
