Volunteer doctor uses holiday to help refugees in Lesbos

A Dutch doctor has taken leave from work, but rather than going on holiday he is volunteering on Lesbos to help refugees in need of medical attention.

Nigel Kooreman is providing first aid for the boatloads of people arriving from Turkey.

Authorities on the Greek island have been overwhelmed by the number of arrivals and rely on volunteers for extra help.
