PROTESTERS are rallying in central Oxford tonight to highlight the 'horror' faced by refugees in the Calais Jungle camp.

Groups including trade unions, the Labour Party and Momentum have turned out for the demonstration as French authorities prepare to dismantle the camp, where many migrants have become stranded as they seek passage to the UK.

There is growing outrage about the conditions faced by people living there, particularly children. Tonight people in Oxford have gathered to demonstrate next to Carfax Tower. 

Earlier this week Home Secretary Amber Rudd confirmed she had stressed to her French counterpart that children eligible to come to the UK should be moved out of the camp before the demolition process starts.

But protestors in Oxford today said they wanted the Government to do more. 

Mum-of-two Cathy Augustine said most people did not understand the 'full horror' faced by child refugees in Calais.

She added: "There are around 1,000 unaccompanied children in the camp.

"It is just awful to think of them there, on their own in the chaos and on a site that is built on land contaminated with asbestos.

"They are also at constant risk of being grabbed by traffickers and sold into lives of horror.

"If we can do the smallest thing to help, we should. The Government needs to act on the Dubs Amendment."

The amendment to the Immigration Bill, proposed by Lord Dubs and passed in the House of Lords earlier this year, commits the Government to taking more refugee children from camps in Europe.
