A man from Milton Keynes, who was caught up in the Windrush scandal has been told he won't be granted British citizenship for another five years.

82-year old Clayton Barnes spent 60 years living and working in the UK but after visiting Jamaica in 2010, he was prevented from returning back to the country.

The Home Office says Mr Barnes doesn't meet the eligibility requirements for citizenship, a move which has angered his family.
