Thousands turn out in Europe to show support for migrants and refugees

Pro-refugee rallies have taken place in many of Europe's capitals this weekend, including London, Madrid and Athens protesting against the current regulation on people coming to europe.

The Europe-wide "day of action" saw rallies of solidarity across many major cities. In Copenhagen alone it was estimated that 30,000 - 40,000 people gathered to demand the danish government re-open its borders.

There were similar scenes in Westminster during a peaceful "refugees welcome" protest, similarly demanding Prime Minister David Cameron accept more refugee's into Britain.
