The Windrush scandal saw thousands of UK residents – most of whom were originally from the Caribbean – wrongly classed as illegal immigrants.

It resulted in thousands wrongly being denied healthcare, housing or the right to work – or being held detained or deported by immigration officials.

It affected people from the Windrush generation, who arrived in the UK from Caribbean countries between 1948 and 1971.

They were granted indefinite leave to remain in 1971, but thousands were children who had travelled on their parents’ passports.

Because of this, many were unable to prove they had the right to live in the country when “hostile environment” immigration policies – demanding documentation be shown – began in 2012.
