Homeless Windrush man wins two-year fight to stay in UK

Cecil Hayes moved to the UK from Grenada in 1966.

He worked in London for 50 years but lost his job and became homeless after his employers found a problem with his paperwork.

Solicitor Mandie Sewa, from Moore Blatch LLP, first met Mr Hayes when she was volunteering to help the homeless.

This is the moment she handed Mr Hayes the paperwork that finally gave him permission to stay in the UK.
