Clooney forced to step over migrants at the Lake Como train station
They came for an idyllic getaway in Italy’s picturesque Lake Como where A-list stars such as George Clooney own property.
But tourists may have been shocked to find that the northern Italian town was not just busy with sun seekers this August – it’s also become a temporary home for up to 500 migrants who’ve been turned away from Switzerland.
Covering the path outside Lake Como’s train station are sleeping bags and the few possessions belonging to the refugees.
Tourists are pictured sitting alongside the migrants’ makeshift beds with their luggage as they wait for trains.
