Unfair Immigration rules separate London families

A London bride-to-be says she's being forced to live thousands of miles away from her Egyptian fiancee, due to immigration rules which unfairly affect British citizens. 

Tooting-based Zahra Kanji claims current legislation means her fiancé would be able to move here if she was from another EU country. 

In response to this story, the Immigration Minister, James Brokenshire has told London Live News:

"We made a commitment in our manifesto to toughen up the requirements for non-EU spouses to join EU citizens, including with an income threshold and English language test.

The Prime Minister's re-negotiation with the EU secured agreement for new legislation to prevent migrants from using marriage to an EU national living in the UK."

Eleanor Cunningham has the story.
