The EU has just two months to sort out its migration policy or face the possible collapse of Europe’s passport-free travel area, European Council president Donald Tusk has warned.

Mr Tusk told EU politicians “we have no more than two months to get things under control”.

He said a summit of EU leaders in Brussels on March 17 and 18 “will be the last moment to see if our strategy works”.

Mr Tusk said that “if it doesn’t, we will face grave consequences such as the collapse of Schengen”, the zone in Europe where people can travel without ID checks.

The EU spent most of 2015 devising policies to cope with the arrival of more than one million people fleeing conflict or poverty, but few are having a real impact.
