Government accused of "betraying" Windrush Generation

The British government has promised to act to reverse "terrible mistakes" made over the treatment of immigrants from the so-called "Windrush" generation, after revelations that people who came to the United Kingdom decades ago are being told to leave the country.

Who are the Windrush generation?

Downing Street said that no meeting had been scheduled but said that there would be "a number of opportunities" for Commonwealth leaders to meet PM Theresa May and discuss this "important issue".

Speaking after Amber Rudd announced that a new task force would be set up to help Commonwealth immigrants facing deportation he said the government should "guarantee the status of all the Windrush children caught up in this crisis".

Immigration minister Caroline Nokes appeared to suggest that some individuals may already have been deported in error.

"I don't know the numbers, but what I am determined to do going forward is to say we will have no more of this".

"Frankly, some of the ways they have been treated has been wrong, has been appalling and I am sorry".

"That is why I setting up a new area in my department to ensure that we have completely new approach to how their situation is regularised".
