A family from Kent have been awarded £130k in compensation from the Home Office after they made a series of mistakes.
It comes after immigration officers ignored warnings surrounding Al Amin Dhalla who was a convicted criminal.
Al Amin Dhalla was found guilty in 2012 of stalking his ex-girlfriend Doctor Alison Hewitt from Brighton, and harrassing her mother.
Despite being sent information about the overseas criminal several times, the Home Office missed vital opportunities to keep a family safe.
It started after a complaint from a mother who discovered that a Canadian man living with her daughter had lied about his overseas criminal past when he came to the UK to live and work.
The Home Office are paying the family £120,000 to apologise for their mistakes and £10,184 towards their expenses.
