Liverpool council finds 24 adult asylum seekers who are posing as children as it launches legal fight to stop almost £1million in taxpayers cash being spent on their care

A legal fight has begun to stop almost £1million of taxpayers’ money being spent on adult asylum seekers posing as children, it emerged last night.

Since May Liverpool council say 39 refugees whose age was in doubt have arrived in the city.

Following specialist assessments costing £60,000, 24 were found to be adults, while only 15 were under 18. Another 17 cases are under review.

Some asylum seekers coming to Britain try to lie about their age because support for under-18s is much better than for adults.
