Have your say

I am sure you are moved by the photo of the little three year old boy lying face down on the beach in Turkey.

People here and all over our city want to help the refugees, this is the city of Sanctuary.

I appeal to the local politicians, to put pressure on the Government to take in more Syrian refugees into the UK.

We cannot stand by and witness this human tragedy without being moved to help and give them a safe haven, free from drowning, starvation and death.
