    The past few months have seen a sharp increase in refugees arriving on Lesbos by boat from Turkey. Over a million people have landed on the Greek island since 2015.

    Conditions inside the main government-run camp are poor and there is little prospect of travelling further into Europe.

    Despite this, up to 200 people are arriving on the island on a daily basis.

    Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull reports from Lesbos.
