Lily Allen APOLOGISES on behalf of UK to child refugees in Calais

The emotional popstar said sorry after visiting the Calais Jungle as part of the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme to interview children attempting to enter Britain.
“I apologise on behalf of my country, I’m sorry for what we’ve put you through,” she says in the clip before bursting into tears while interviewing a 13-year-old Afghan boy.
She asks why the teenager left his home country for Europe, to which the boy replies: “The Taliban were going to kill me, they were on one side and Daesh were on the other, my father sold land and sent me here.”
The 31-year-old singer then tells the teenager he has a “legal right” to be in the UK and asks if he has started the process of applying to enter the UK legally.
