Tens of thousands of people marched through central London on Saturday, demonstrating their support of refugees travelling to European Union countries in search of safety.

The march which started from Hyde Park and continued to Parliament Square via Downing Street was attended by the newly elected Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn and well known British musician and campaigner, Billy Bragg.

Participating organisations included the Refugee Council, Amnesty International, the Syria Solidarity Movement, Stand Up to Racism and the Stop the War Coalition.

A photograph of the dead body of toddler, Aylan Kurdi, in the surf off a popular Turkish holiday resort, prompted sympathy and outrage at the perceived inaction of developed nations in helping thousands of refugees using dangerous sea-routes to reach Europe, many of whom have fled Syria's four-year civil war.
