Campaigners are celebrating the news that a teenager from Kent who was due to be deported to Afghanistan, is to be allowed to remain in the UK. Najibullah Hashimi, who's 19, had been fostered by a family in Faversham.
They say they've had support from thousands of people who signed a petition to keep Najib here, and that the tribunal recognised the impact on the family that deportation would have.
Najib told Meridian he'd dreaded being sent back to Afghanistan where his father and brother were killed by the Taliban. From Faversham, David Johns reports, speaking to Najib, his stepfather Steven Griffiths, and campaigner Mick Nokes.
