David Cameron: 'Swarm' of migrants crossing Mediterranean

Prime Minister David Cameron has come under criticism for his description of migrants trying to reach Britain as a "swarm".

Speaking on the Calais crisis to ITV News, he spoke of "a swarm of people coming across the Mediterranean, seeking a better life, wanting to come to Britain".

The Refugee Council, which works with refugees in the UK, has said his comments were "irresponsible" and "dehumanising".
