How the civil war in Syria led to a family living life apart

Jenan Gabbar escaped the civil war in Syria and is now living in Leicester.

She has joint British-Syrian nationality, but tough new immigration rules mean her husband can't get a visa to visit his family.

Breakfast’s Graham Satchell met Jenan and her children.
