WATCH: Powerful Unicef ad calls for action to help children seeking asylum

Unicef UK have released a film calling for urgent action to help children affected by war, emergencies and natural disasters.

The powerful campaign aims to reflect the experiences faced by children in Syria and other conflict zones.

The 'World Upside Down' spot shows a British family enjoying what appears to be an ordinary day out at the park. However, each time the children spin upside down by dangling from climbing frame or doing a headstand the camera flips 180-degrees – revealing a glimpse of what life would be like if they lived in a war zone.
