Jeremy Corbyn urges Government to aid 'desperate' refugees


Jeremy Corbyn has addressed tens of thousands of people at a rally supporting the rights of refugees in his first act as Labour leader.

Protesters gathered throughout the day in London's Parliament Square where the newly-elected Labour leader appeared to give a speech about the refugee crisis.

Cheered on by the crowds he told the Government: "Recognise your obligations in law, that would be good. Recognise your obligations to help people which you're required to do by law, that would be good.

"But above all, open your hearts and open your minds and open your attitude towards supporting people who are desperate, who need somewhere safe to live, want to contribute to our society, and are human beings just like all of us.

"Together in peace, together in justice, together in humanity, that surely must be our way forward."
