According to statistics, Newark and Sherwood is home to more refugees from Ukraine than any district of borough in Nottinghamshire.

Data to April 19 shows residents of Newark and Sherwood housed 85 refugees from the war.

Government visa schemes allow people to take refugees into their own homes. The schemes are still operating, meaning many more people will have been housed since April 19.
