Amber Rudd Open Letter

Everyone in Manchester knows the name Robert Chilowa. And rightly so. Mr. Chilowa dashed to the scene of a ferocious blaze engulfing a neighbour's house after hearing screams of terror and rescued two young children from the flames that had already claimed the lives of their grandparents. Despite braving the devastating fire on Parsonage Road in Withington to save the two children from a second-floor window, rightly garnering national headlines, he has now been threatened with deportation by authorities.

John Leech has written to Home Secretary Amber Rudd to demand his residence in Withington is made permanent. You can read it below, and if you agree, why not share it on social media? Together we can show Manchester to be the open, tolerant and welcoming city we know it is.
