It is incredible to think that forty-years-ago, a local authority placed an advert in a Ugandan newspaper warning Asians not to move to Leicester. It said local services were already stretched.
This happened at a time when Asians in Uganda were being forced to leave the country by the dictator Idi Amin.
But they defied the warnings from the council. And as Rajiv Popat reports, they arrived penniless and overcame intense hostility to make their mark in Britain.
