Sokółka is a town in northeastern Poland, some 20 km from the Belarusian border. In recent months, the area has found itself at the centre of a mounting migrant crisis.

The crisis has forced Sokółka to shut schools as it became overrun with security and police forces deployed to tackle migration pressure from Belarus.

Polish Radio reporters went down to the area to ask local residents what they think of the border standoff.
