‘Graveyard Of Refugee Lifejackets’ In Parliament Square Ahead Of UN Migration Summit

Campaigners have laid out thousands of refugee lifejackets in Parliament Square ahead of a migration summit in New York, to encourage world leaders to do more to tackle the crisis.

At the summit Theresa May is to warn UN leaders of the “dangers of mass migration”, and will advocate that countries have greater control over their borders.

In a Facebook post Yvette Cooper said: “It was incredibly moving to see the life jackets on Parliament Square today, each one representing three people who have lost their lives trying to flee persecution over the last 18 months. Some of the jackets were tiny, which brings home just how indiscriminate this crisis is.”
