MP: Most refugees are 'young men chancing their luck'

Most of the refugees attempting to enter the UK are not fleeing war, but are "mostly young men, mostly with mobile phones, chancing their luck", according to MP David Davies.

He told BBC Radio Wales while he would probably do the same in their situation, the UK should not accept any more.

The Conservative said they have made "an economic decision" and are heading to the places where they are most likely to get benefits or work.

Meanwhile, Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood said Wales should offer to take its "fair share" of refugees.

The Welsh government said immigration policy was not devolved but it was "very willing" to accept refugees.
