A teenager who fled conflict in Syria and came to Derby with his brother and father says he would be dead if he had stayed.
Nasr Ali recently earned top A-levels along with his brother Zaher, despite knowing no English when they arrived in 2007.
– Nasr Ali
I would be dead if I had stayed in Syria. A lot of my family members have been killed in the conflict out there.
There was one village where many of them lived which was completely wiped out. In the area where we were living there has been a lot of fighting and bombs have been dropped so I have no doubt that I would have been killed.
If we had stayed in Syria our whole family would have been arrested, not just my father, we had to leave.
Nasr's father was a member of the Palestinian Democracy Union, which was in opposition to the Syrian Government.
He described one day when armed soldiers from the Government knocked on their door looking for his father.
– Nasr Ali
My dad knew who it was, he knew by their knock, and he went out of the back door. The soldiers searched the house, they were carrying guns, and we told them we hadn't seen him for a long time so they left. We didn't know what was going on.
He was gone for weeks, then my mother's brother came and took her away so we were alone for a long time. We were very frightened.
Then my dad's brother, who lived next door to us, came and took us to where our father was, in hiding. Our father said we would be leaving Syria in two days time and we had to pack all of our stuff. It was scary but my father had been to the UK before and assured us we would have a good life there. He had applied for us all to be asylum seekers.I really wanted to come here but I also wanted to see my mum, we didn't know where she was and we haven't seen her for seven years, we still don't even know if she's safe.
Two brothers who came to the UK after fleeing from conflict in Syria look forward to a bright future, after achieving top A-level grades.
Zaher, who is 20, and Nasr Ali, who is 18, arrived in Derby in 2007, without knowing any English, but still managed to earn a number of A grades at St Benedict Catholic Voluntary Academy.
Zaher also had to deal with being diagnosed with blood cancer last August, managing only 60% attendance at school, after being ill while undergoing chemotherapy.
He still managed two As and a B. His brother, Nasr, got three A grades. Both are now going on to study at university in London.
– Zaher Ali
We were picked on a bit at primary school because we couldn't speak English but we had lessons and our language soon improved.
Our English got better and better at Saint Benedict and we felt like we were really welcomed here.
We've both worked hard for our A-levels and are really pleased with our results.

We are heartbroken and devastated at the loss of our vibrant, happy, bubbly little man, Kai Joseph (ginge to all who knew him).
He was our ray of sunshine who brightened up the darkest day. We, as a family, are overwhelmed with the support of everyone in the close-knit village of Hatton and from people afar.
He was always out and about, whether it was fishing, taking his beloved dogs for a walk with his dad or just in the village. He would smile and put his thumb up to everyone.
RIP wee man.
