Ahmad al-Rashid fled Syria in 2015 as the civil war there intensified - this is his heartwarming tale of how warmly he's been welcomed by the British people he's met since then.

Ahmad was live in studio on the day that Donald Trump ordered airstrikes against Syrian bases, in response to the terrible chemical weapons attack earlier this week by government forces.

He joined James for a compelling hour of radio, telling his tale of escaping from the country and making a new home in Britain.

At the end of the hour, he took a moment to explain just how grateful he was to the British charity who helped him settle here and the individuals who've made time to help him settle.

"My experience, since I came to this country, has been one of the most fantastic experiences," said Ahmad. "They opened their hearts, they opened their homes.

"My family was welcome, the community was great, we've got volunteers visiting us, teaching me English."

"Those are British values," James said.

Ahmad: "They are the British values, they are the human values."
