Illegal immigrant wants to go home

A South African man who has been living illegally in England for 20 years says he is desperate to leave but the authorities are not helping him go home.

Chris Swanepoel, an illegal immigrant living in Cambridgeshire, says life has become very difficult with the crackdown in illegal immigration.

The Home Office has said the onus was on Mr Swanepoel to prove his identity which might explain the delay in him being sent home.
