Actor Jude Law and singer Tom Odell were among a number of famous faces to take to the stage at the Jungle camp in Calais in a bid to raise the plight of refugees.

The stars travelled to the site in France two days before it is due to be dismantled on the orders of the country's authorities.

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

An estimated 4,000 migrants and refugees from countries including Syria, Afghanistan, Eritrea and Iraq are currently based within the Jungle. Many of them are unaccompanied children, aid charities have said.
