Syrian refugees set for UK arrival after landmark legal victory


Four Syrian refugees who won a landmark legal case to come to Britain from "The Jungle" are set to arrive in London.

A British court ruled on Wednesday that four Syrians - three teenagers and a 26-year-old man with severe mental health issues - should be immediately brought across the Channel from the makeshift refugee camp in Calais.

The four young men are set to have an emotional reunion with members of their families at King's Cross station.

The brother of one of the refugees told the Press Association he cannot wait to be reunited with his younger sibling, who he has not seen for nearly two years.

Ahmed, who is not using his real name in order to protect his brother's identity, said: "The first thing I'm going to do is hug him and not let him go.

"He is the youngest in my family and I haven't seen him in a long time.

"It is hard to describe how happy I felt when I heard the court's ruling yesterday. It was really, really amazing.

"It was everything I was waiting for."
