UK's PM faces pressure over Windrush immigration scandal

It has been revealed that targets for deporting long-settled Windrush migrants were part of Prime Minister Theresa May's policy when she was home secretary.

    Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May is coming under increasing pressure over the government's treatment of the so-called "Windrush generation", a scandal that has already forced the resignation of her home secretary.

    Amber Rudd quit after telling parliament there were no targets for deporting the long-settled Windrush migrants.

    It has since been revealed that targets were part of May's policy when she was home secretary.
