Student visa system fraud exposed in BBC investigation

The Home Office has suspended English language tests run by a major firm after BBC Panorama uncovered systematic fraud in the student visa system.

Secret filming of government-approved English exams needed for a visa showed entire rooms of candidates having the tests faked for them.

The English Testing Service - one of the largest language testing firms in the world - said it did all it could to prevent fraud.

Richard Watson reports.
