Local residents have continued to campaign to save Mildred Okpara and her young family from deportation.
A demonstration at the Town Hall in September was followed by David Blunkett MP pledging his support. The MP hopes the case will be reviewed.
The Okparas were told they would be deported on 25th October, but this was deferred after the intervention of the Nigerian High Commission, who would not give permission for travel. No new date for deportation has been given.
Local residents and local school St Catherine’s are continuing their campaign for the Okparas to be allowed to stay permanently in the UK.
You can still offer your support by signing the online petition www.gopetition.com/petition/38613.html
