A couple who have a young daughter are living apart because neither can stay in the partner's home country due to visa issues.

David Chappell is bringing up two-year-old Emma alone in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, because his US wife Brandi has been refused residency in the UK.

The 46-year-old said he has a 10-year ban from entering the US after two previous overstays with his wife.
