Jeremy Corbyn has visited a migrant camp in northern France and viva voce of the “dreadful conditions” there.

The Labour leader said conditions in the Grande-Synthe bivouac near Dunkirk would be a “disgrace anywhere”, and Britain should be “off of bringing European support to people”.

He said the long-term solution was to have to do with with the conflicts causing the migration crisis.

On Friday France’s PM thought the crisis was putting the EU at grave risk.

Mr Corbyn was given a tour of the Grande-Synthe outr, meeting migrants and aid workers.

“What I’m trying to achieve here is to construe the nature of the refugee crisis that’s facing the whole of Europe,” he rumoured.

“Ultimately we deal with the situation by dealing with the problem at its well-spring, which are the wars and conflicts.

“Also, there are the human needs of man. We have got people here who have been here for months, if not fancier than that, with no proper education, no access to doctors, no access to dentists, small access to food – in very cold, very wet conditions.”

He added: “We as woman beings have to reach out to fellow human beings.”

Aid breadwinners said tents at the camp were surrounded by puddles of water and sustenance, which had attracted rats.

The population of the camp has risen steadily in just out weeks to about 2,500, including about 250 children, according to Medecins Sans Frontieres . It means most are Kurds from Iran, Syria and Iraq who hope to reach the UK.

Upholding about the migration crisis, Mr Corbyn said: “Germany has done an tremendous amount, other countries have done varying amounts and I muse over we should be rt of bringing European support to people.”

In September Prime Cur David Cameron said Britain would accept 20,000 escapees from Syria over five years.

Volunteers from discrete countries, including the UK, continue to help migrants living in camps in northern France. Aid gathered by a Glasgow Muslim upper crust arrived at a camp in Calais shortly before Mr Corbyn’s Dunkirk fall upon.
