Jude Law speaks at Calais ‘Jungle’ event

Actor Jude Law was among a number of famous faces to visit the ‘Jungle’ camp in Calais today to raise awareness for the plight of refugees.

He joined musician Tom Odell, actress Juliet Stevenson and comedian Shappi Khorsandi at the French camp which holds an estimated 4,000 migrants and refugees, two days before it was due to be dismantled.

Many of those in the camp are unaccompanied children, aid charities have said.

More than 100 celebrities have already signed an open letter urging David Cameron to step in and ensure children based in the camp are saved.

“It’s our responsibility as humans to look after our children.

The children in the camp at Calais need us. It isn’t a big ask. It is simply the right thing to do.”

– Actor Jude Law

Tom Odell played alongside other musicians and refugees in the camp, and described it as “one of the most humbling and inspiring experiences of my life”.
