British Army interpreter speaks of struggle to survive

An Afghan student has spoken of how working for the British army led to him being beaten, threatened with death and held in a dungeon.

Layiq Sediqi used to be an interpreter but the Taliban treated him as a collaborator and he was forced to flee the country.

People traffickers locked him in cellar but got him to England in a lorry where Mr Sediqi's former commander helped him get permission to stay as a refugee.
