Jude Law showed his solidarity with refugees as he walked beside Little Amal - a 3.5 metre-tall living artwork of a young Syrian refugee child.    

The actor, 48, looked in good spirits as he joined the puppet in Folkestone, Kent on Tuesday as it began its journey through the UK.  

Little Amal - which means 'hope' in Arabic - has been making the journey all the way from the Turkish-Syrian border since the end of July.

Little Amal was designed by Handspring - the same company which produced the horse puppets in the War Horse play. 

Jude attended the celebration of the puppet finally landing on British soil. 

She represents the 17,000 people who have taken the same journey across the channel this year alone.
