Thousands more migrants arrive Greece.

Thousands of migrants have arrived in mainland Greece as the government prepares for talks on tackling the huge number of people reaching its shores.

Two ships carrying more than 4,200 people travelled to Piraeus port at night after leaving Lesbos island, as hundreds of people, mostly from the Middle East, remain stranded outside a railway station in Hungary after police stopped them travelling through the European Union.

More than 160,000 people have arrived in Greece so far this year – already surpassing last year’s total with the country’s government saying it lacks the resources to look after the many arrivals.
