Background: A week of home searching by a 21 year old kenya Asian girl ended today (tuesday) when it was announced she would be allowed into Britain. Miss Ranjan Vaid has spent the last week shuttling between airports in Europe and Africa.
Although Miss Vaid has a British passport she wasn't allowed into the UK because she didn't have an entry voucher. When she was told she would have to leave, the girl found she couldn't go back to her native Kenya because she had left the country. Now its been decided to allow her to stay in British for three months to regularise her affairs.
