  11. Grandmother facing deportation 'wins right to stay'

    Gavin Kermack

    Reporter, BBC Hereford & Worcester

    A woman who faced being deported to South Africa, despite a medical report saying she'd be likely to die, says she's won her battle to remain in the UK.

    Brenda Ackerman

    Brenda Ackerman, 71, moved to Lower Broadheath, Worcestershire, with her family in 2012 and, despite numerous appeals, her application to stay was repeatedly turned down.

    Her family says she was told she had to return to South Africa, a country she hasn’t lived in for nearly 15 years, and where she has no friends or family.

    But today, she says she received confirmation from the Home Office that she can stay for the next 10 years and her family told BBC Hereford and Worcester that they're overjoyed.
