Aid groups in Greece are struggling to cope with the number of refugees arriving by land and sea. According to the government's latest figures, average daily arrivals rose from 56 people a day in the spring, to roughly four times that figure in September and October.

Many of them find themselves on the island of Lesbos, which has become a popular landing hub for approximately one million refugees since 2015.

Al Jazeera's John Psaropoulos reports from Lesbos.
