Dementia patient, aged 77, will not be deported

A 77-year-old man with dementia, facing deportation to Pakistan, will now be allowed to stay in the UK.

Hakeem Muhammad Haleem, who is partially blind and has diabetes, has been cared for by relatives in Greater Manchester since his wife died in 2011.

The Home Office, which turned down his visa application in April, has now ruled he can stay until 2019, the Manchester Evening News reports.

It said his "limited leave to remain" was because of "compassionate factors".
