Resettlement of unaccompanied child refugees
The Guardian reports on the start of the resettlement programme for unaccompanied refugee children living in the Calais refugee camp. Key points include: Citizens UK has drawn up a list of 387 child refugees with a legal right to come to the UK which the French authorities agreed to verify; a group of 14 children arrived in the UK from Calais on 17 October, who the Home Office said were among about 100 to be resettled in the UK.
