A South African grandma who is facing deportation from the UK says it makes her feel like she “just wants to dissolve into tears”.

Myrtle Cothill is due to be deported but the Home Office has halted moves while awaiting new medical reports.

However no permanent decision has been made and she feels the stress of the situation is “killing” her.

She is cared for in Poole, Dorset, by her daughter, Mary Wills, who would not be able to go with her to South Africa.
