Kind-hearted Black Country residents have established drop-off points across the region in order for people to leave donations to help Ukrainians fleeing the Russian invasion.

Items are being dropped off across the Black Country, including locations in Wolverhampton and Walsall.

Speaking at an emergency meeting of the security council on Monday, Britain's UN ambassador Dame Barbara Woodward, described the scale of the potential devastation.

"As a result of President Putin’s decision to launch a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, a country of 44 million people is now on the brink of humanitarian catastrophe", she said.

Her comments come as Prime Minister Boris Johnson flies to Nato’s border with Russia, pledging that Vladimir Putin will “feel the consequences” for invading Ukraine.

But hundreds of people are also looking for ways to help the people of Ukraine as war wages throughout their country.
