Boat race protester Trenton Oldfield on deportation

An Australian man who is facing deportation after he was jailed for disrupting last year's University Boat Race has said he does not regret his actions.

Trenton Oldfield was jailed for six months after swimming in front of Oxford and Cambridge rowers.

The Home Office has said his presence in the UK is "not conducive to the public good".

Oldfield and his British wife, Deepa Naik, spoke about what this deportation threat meant to his family life, with Ms Naik due to give birth this week.

Rushanara Ali, MP for Bethnal Green and Bow, also gives her view on his deportation.
