Teams from the Home Office were in the city to help people who were forced to prove they had the right to be in the UK.

Attendees were told there is no cap on the amount of compensation a person can receive and that relatives of those affected can also make a claim.

Desmond Jaddoo, who helped organise the event, said he hopes it will help bring a resolution to what's been a stressful time for many.
