Sadiq Khan hails 'fantastic' Church response to Windrush scandal

The Mayor of London has described the way churches across the UK have been responding to the Windrush scandal as "fantastic".

Sadiq Khan said the way some members of the Windrush generation had been treated amounted to a "stain on the nation's conscience". He wen on to say in an interview with Premier Radio: "There is no better example of the advocacy role of churches in our city and country than the fantastic role they've played helping the Windrush generation, their children and their descendants."

Sadiq was speaking as he unveiled £20,000 to help affected families seek legal advice via the Windrush Justice Fund and apply via the Home Office Windrush scheme for citizenship.

Church leaders joined Sadiq in urging the Government to ensure members of the Windrush generation are treated fairly.
