Fantastic news - Hazel, Vincent and Simon get to stay!

Thrilled to hear last night that our neighbour and friend Hazel Minn will not be deported to Burma...she and her adopted sons Simon and Vincent have been given permission for permanent residence in this country. It has been a five year battle, and all tribute to Shetland and Orkney MP Alistair Carmichael for his unstinting commitment to the cause. And everyone else involved, from the Church of Scotland to the 6000 Shetlanders who signed a petition supporting the Minns.

More info and pictures on almost every news site, but especially here.
