An Afghanistan war veteran faces being thrown out of the country after his British citizenship was turned down, because of a speeding ticket. Sapper Poloko Hiri, who's living in Leeds, served with the Royal Engineers after enlisting as a Commonwealth serviceman from his native Botswana.
He's been told he must leave by Friday after the UK Border Agency said he was of bad character, because he received an £80 fine for speeding. Yet if he returns to Botswana it's likely he'll be jailed for enlisting in the British Army.
