Visit to Lampedusa


The Italian island of Lampedusa has become the primary entry point into Europe for migrants travelling through the Mediterranean.

Father Sean Gilbert, curate at Christ Church in St Leonards-on-Sea, visited Lampedusa earlier this year to meet with migrants on the island.

In this interview, he talks about how he came to visit Lampedusa, and tells of the harrowing experience of a woman he met from The Gambia.
