'Taliban-fleeing' teen fears deportation

A teenager who fled to the UK from Afghanistan when his grandfather was killed by the Taliban has said he fears he will be deported.

Apprentice builder Walid Durani arrived in Hampshire when he was 14.

Since turning 18, he said he has been told he must return to Afghanistan, where he knows no-one.

His sister lives in the UK and his parents are in Austria.

Mr Durani's employer, Ruth Beach, said he was "so deserving" to stay in the UK.

The Home Office said it does not comment on individual cases.
