Sussex couple reunited after Home Offices reverse ruling

A Sussex couple and their children have been reunited after the Home Office reversed a ruling that forced them to live thousands of miles apart.

Stephen Chantel married his wife, Joy, in Thailand six years ago - and sold his home to fund a visa application for her to join him and their two children in Hastings.

They were shocked when the Home Office blocked the application. But officials relented after ITV Meridian highlighted their case. Andy Dickenson reports.
