He said his home in Kempele, in the north of the country, was not frequently used at the moment and would house asylum seekers from the start of next year.

The Finnish Prime Minister also said an EU plan to shelter 120,000 refugees arriving in Greece, Italy and Hungary in other countries in the EU should be voluntary.

He added that he hoped Finland could lead by example, after yesterday doubling its estimate for the number of asylum seekers to 30,000.
