A man from Penarth who survived the 7/7 bombings in London, but then faced deportation from the UK due to a technicality over citizenship, has now, finally, won his right to stay. Professor John Tulloch says he's 'delighted' to now be granted British citizenship.
He was born to British parents in India before independence. This only conferred a lesser British nationality, and, when he got an Australian passport in the 1990s, he inadvertently voided his right to live in Britain.
Now, after his story was covered and provoked a public outcry, he has been granted British citizenship. 'It has been an absolute nightmare. I've been trying for so many years to get my British passport back', he said. He now hopes to get a British passport formally by Christmas.
A man from the Vale of Glamorgan who survived the 7/7 terror attacks in London is facing the possiblity of being deported. John Tulloch from Penarth was brought up in the UK but born in India while it was a British Colony. David Wood has been speaking to him.
