File details

Coronation Street actress Julie Hesmondhalgh meets members of the Sukula family from the Congo, at home in Bolton, Lancashire, where they are facing eviction and their children being taken into care. They are believed to be the first under new legislation to have state support withdrawn after their asylum claim was rejected. Mother Ngiedi Lusukumu (right) is scarred from beating by Congo government militia because of her husband Kiala's (centre) links to regime opponents. - Paul Herrmann - 2005-08-10
