Colin Firth backs campaign

Oscar winning actor Colin Firth has joined the fight to help a woman facing deportation stay in West Yorkshire.

Roseline Akhalu suffers from chronic kidney disease and says she could die if she is sent back to Nigeria as she relies on anti-medication she's received in the UK since she had a kidney transplant. She had the operation while studying here legally as a student.

After a campaign to keep her in Leeds, she has been allowed to stay in the city until a court hearing in July.
