On March 25, Angela Maclean from BBC Eorpa reported on the effect of the pandemic on refugees and asylum seekers in Glasgow.

During the first lockdown many were moved into hotel accommodation for their safety and welfare but concerns emerged about the effect of this on their mental health. A year on many remain in hotels and further concerns have been raised about conditions in a new mother and baby unit in the city.

The full episode is available on BBC iPlayer until April 22, 2021. Watch here.
