Migrants pulled from sea by Spanish lifeguards

The first group of 1,000 Syrian refugees has arrived in the UK as part of the government's commitment to resettle a limited number of people fleeing the conflict.

But the wave of migrants and refugees arriving in Greece shows no signs of stopping - despite the weather - with 3,000 arrivals a day on the island of Lesbos last month.

Over the past few days the Greek authorities and volunteer groups have been carrying out rescues at sea.

Damian Grammaticas reports from Lesbos.
