A Zimbabwean man who moved to the United Kingdom (UK) at the age of nine was given only £40 to help him start a new life after he was deported back to Zimbabwe.
Bruce Mpofu, from Bradford, left the Southern African country with his mum who works for the National Health Service (NHS), Britain’s public health system.

However, at 15 he got in with the wrong crowd and committed a crime which meant he was in breach of immigration laws.
Bruce then had to attend regular meetings before he was told on 8 July that he would be deported.
He does not have any friends or family in the country due to the number of years he has lived in the UK and there are fears he could end up homeless after being handed only £40 to help him start a new life in Zimbabwe.
A GoFundMe appeal has been launched to try and reverse his deportation – and help Bruce survive in the meantime.
