Number Ten rejects request for talks with Caribbean officials on Windrush children

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.

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".
