Political Editor

Back in Westminster there was confusion over whether Ukrainian refugees arriving in Calais could get visas there to cross to Britain.

But Boris Johnson did promise an extra £175 million in aid for Ukraine as he met the prime ministers of Canada and the Netherlands in Downing Street.

He also warned that Britain would have to extract more oil and gas from domestic sources to reduce dependency on Russia.
