Revealed: Home Office allowed 7,500 migrants accused of cheating the student visa system to stay in Britain

Thousands of migrants accused of cheating the student visa system have been allowed to stay in Britain, a report has warned.

Around 56,000 foreign citizens were implicated in a scam to fake English language tests to beat UK border controls, said the National Audit Office (NAO).

The spending watchdog said bogus students had exploited the lax system in a racket run by criminal gangs.

Yet about 7,500 had been given permission to remain in the UK rather than being thrown out – often challenging the decision on human rights grounds.
