'Trapped in Syria's civil war with no escape'


(with video of the Channel 4 coverage)

'A British woman whose Syrian husband is desperate to join her in the UK says new family migration rules are keeping them apart and putting his life at risk.

'On a park bench in Leeds, Christine Gilmore is on the verge of tears. She's near the end of her story about her attempts to rescue her husband from the ravages of the Syrian civil war.

'She wants to bring him to the UK, but under the new family migration rules, the hurdles - even for her, a highly educated PhD student - are daunting.

'"It's been three years of complete emotional upheaval - I'm emotionally and physically exhausted. I barely sleep. I'm not coping any more."
