Vince Cable's anger over deportation of man with Down's syndrome

The Business Secretary Vince Cable has accused the Home Office of being "inhumane" for trying to deport a man with Down's syndrome.

Wadih Chourey has been living in Twickenham, south-west London, ever since fleeing abuse in his home country of Lebanon 17 years ago. He works at his brothers' cafe in Isleworth.

The Home Office said his case does not meet the requirements for someone to stay in the UK.

His brother Camil and Colin Marsh, the chair of Isleworth Residents' Association, both talk to BBC London's Jean Mackenzie about why they are angry he is sent being sent back.

His case is now set to be heard at the Court of Appeal.
