Gurkhas win right to stay in UK

Breaking News

A group of retired Gurkhas fighting for the right to settle in Britain have won their immigration test case, their lawyers have said.

Five ex-Gurkhas and the widow of another Gurkha veteran took their case to the High Court in London.

They were challenging immigration rules which said that those who retired from the British Army before 1997 did not have an automatic right to stay.

The judgment could mean some 2,000 Gurkhas being allowed to settle here.
