British-Syrian family separated by UK immigration rules.


British-Syrian national Jenan Gabbar escaped the civil war in Syria with her children and moved to Leicester to start a new life.

But new immigration rules in the UK mean her husband cannot get a visa to visit them.

The rules have been criticised by the Children's Commissioner, who says children are being separated from their parents.
