Campaigners want 3,000 children from Europe

"The UK is to accept more unaccompanied child refugees from Syria and other conflict zones - but the government has not said how many."

"The Home Office will work with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees to identify`exceptional cases` from camps in Syria and neighbouring countries."

"The UK is to take 20,000 refugees from Syria by 2020 - but campaigners want it to take 3,000 children from Europe."

"The PM said doing so might spur more refugees to risk `lethal` journeys."

"Save the Children said child refugees in Europe were `incredibly vulnerable`."

"The government also said it was giving £10m to help vulnerable refugee minors already in Europe; some can be brought to the UK `where it is in their best interests`."

Where it is in their best interests ! Some nerve.

The UK Government and the BBC are up to their necks in child abuse inquiries and should know that children are not safe in the UK care system.
