Clayton is now 82 and when he arrived in the UK nearly 60 years ago he was given indefinite leave to remain.

After living and working here for more than fifty years - including a time fixing the roof of Buckingham Palace - he went back to Jamaica after his retirement. But when he tried to fly back to the UK - he was told he wasn't allowed.
