Bangladeshis leave London to return home

With the increasingly tough economic climate, a number of Bangladeshis who emigrated to the UK have decided to return home.

Ashraf Ali had been living in Forest Gate in East London with his family. He was born in Bangladesh and moved to the UK 17 years ago but he has just moved back to Dhaka to work as an accountant. He and his wife, Faria, say they can have a better lifestyle there, but it will not be without its challenges.
