A spokesperson said: “We have been in contact with Mr White’s legal representatives today (4 September) to confirm that his application for Indefinite Leave to Remain has been approved.”
Lawyers representing him previously claimed he should be eligible for indefinite leave to remain, which means there would be no limit on how long he can stay in the UK, and say it is a mystery he has not already acquired it.
Sharon Bishop, one of the teachers at Highfields School, where Brian attended after arriving in the UK, told the Express and Star: "When I heard the news I burst into tears. And I never cry. I cried for about an hour.
"We are absolutely thrilled to get this result. Now we have got three weeks to pack and get him off to Oxford for the start of the term. We are delighted, thrilled, absolutely over the moon.
