British Red Cross recreates world's largest refugee camp in new installation at Westfield Stratford

Shoppers in East London have been given a glimpse into what life is like in the world's largest refugee camp. The British Red Cross has recreated part of Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh, at Westfield in Stratford. The installation demonstrates the challenging conditions that 700,000 people face, having fled their homes when violence broke out in neighbouring Myanmar two years ago. The charity hope the installation will remind Londoners of the plight of those still living in the camp.
