Witham: Dad barred from job after being told he is not a British citizen
2:00pm Wednesday 20th March 2013 in News
A father has been told he has no right to work in the country - despite living here for nearly almost all his life.
Michael Williams, 40, had even worked as a delivery driver and a cycle shop manager, despite having no British passport or documents to prove when he arrived in the country.
But he now fears losing his five-year-old daughter Kelcy - whom he gave up work for in 2007 to look after - because of doubts about his entitlement to benefits.
Mr Williams, of St Andrews Road, Hatfield Peverel, said: “I have never faced such a problem in my life.
“I have gone everywhere for help and no-one has ever come across a case like this before."
