As Prime Minister Theresa May met Arab leaders in the Gulf yesterday, Jamie added: “Yemen is a terrible tragedy that seems to have fallen off the radar screens because it’s not Iraq, Mosul, Syria, or Aleppo.

“The figures we have seen are only going to be exasperated in the next few months. Unless we can do something to fill that gap with food supplies or humanitarian resources, the numbers will only increase.

“From the crises I’ve seen, this one is different because it has been driven by political forces and the human dimension has been forgotten because it’s uncomfortable for people.

“Money is important but it’s not just about money. It’s the need for political commitment from member states to put this on the radar screen.

“The humanitarian consequences of political inaction on this one are unforgivable.”
