Linwood Couple: Let Us Stay Together

http://www.heart.co.uk/scotland/news/local/linwood-couple-let-us-stay-together/

' A Renfrewshire couple are facing the prospect of being split up by the Home Office, weeks before their second child is due.

'Lyndsey Burke and Tugrul Keseli, who're both 29, live in Linwood with their 3-year-old daughter Alara and have been together since 2008. Tugrul, known as Tom, is Turkish, and is fighting to stay in Scotland.

'Lyndsey said: ''To bring this to your door three weeks before you're due to give birth I think is just cruel. They absolutely know every detail, they know everything that's going on. Just absolutely devastating.''
