Dundee’s leading politicians have put aside their differences to ensure the city does everything it can to help refugees fleeing Syria.
In a rare show of unity, both Labour and the SNP joined forces to approve a motion that will see the City of Discovery offer a “safe haven” to those fleeing brutal civil war in the Middle East.
The city council cannot say at this stage how many refugees it will accept though activists have called for it to offer sanctuary to more than 500.
SNP administration leader Ken Guild said: “These people are refugees, they are people fleeing for their lives and we must give them a safe haven.”
He was supported by Labour leader Kevin Keenan, who agreed Dundee needed to everything it can to help those fleeing Syria.
