OMOYIOLA WINS RIGHT TO RETURN

A Liverpool City Council housing officer stranded in Hong Kong for more than two months after being refused re-entry to Britain has been allowed home.

Nigerian born Bayo Omoyiola, who came to Britain legally in 1989, was refused a work permit and issued with a deportation order last year.

He went on a fact-finding mission to China for Unison, confident he would be allowed to re-enter Britain to attend an appeal hearing on 8 August.

He has now received a letter from his MP saying he can come home to fight his case, after a special adjudicator in Manchester advised he should attend his hearing in person.

Mr Omoyiola told LGC from Hong Kong: 'I'm over the moon. Justice has been done and I will see it through.'
