Hope for Gamu over deportation
X Factor contestant Gamu Nhengu and her family are "hopeful" they will be allowed to remain in the UK after the Home Office decided to reconsider her case.
The 18-year-old singer, who was eliminated from the ITV show, was told she must return to Zimbabwe after her mother Nokuthula Ngazana's visa application was turned down.
An appeal was due to be heard at an Immigration Tribunal in Glasgow yesterday. But at the start of the hearing, a Home Office representative said the case would be reconsidered. The family's lawyer, Frances Farrell, told reporters that the family are pleased with the decision.
