UK 'must not turn blind eye' to refugees, says Rowan Williams

The former spiritual head of the Church of England, Rowan Williams, has called on the UK not to "turn a blind eye" to the current refugee crisis.

Dr Williams, who now chairs the charity Christian Aid, said the UK had a proud history of offering refuge to those in need.
