    Hundreds of children living alone in a refugee camp in northern France are waiting to find out if they can travel to Britain to be reunited with their families.

    It follows a legal test case last week in which four young people were allowed into the UK.

    Their situation only came to light thanks to one British woman who gave up her job to work with the children. 

    Al Jazeera’s Laurence Lee reports from Calais.
