First Calais 'kids' arrive: Migrant asylum seekers supposedly aged 14-17 arrive in UK
Quote:Fourteen teenagers who all claimed to be aged between 14 and 17-years-old arrived at the UK Visas and Immigration head office in Croydon, south London.

Despite looking considerably older than the teenage cutoff point, the “children” are demanding asylum and saying they come from war-torn countries.

While the refugees may look to some like fully-grown adults, it is difficult to find documents or proof of age.

However, the Home Office is insisting that stringent security and age checks have been carried out.

Under EU regulations, most refugees must claim asylum in the first safe country they reach.

However, there is an exception to this rule when children are concerned.

They can transfer their application to a country where they have relatives who are already settled.
