Migrant crisis: Omar draws his journey from Syria to Calais

Sixteen-year-old Omar is one of many unaccompanied minors living in the Calais "Jungle" camp, with hopes to join relatives in the UK. He told the BBC the story of his journey from Syria and drew some of his own experiences.

We have worked with him to bring these drawings to life.
