(Photograph) - Kurdish refugee Melis Berk is threatened with deportation by the Home Office, despite brain damage and epilepsy that have left her profoundly disabled and in need of 24-hour care. Teachers at her north London special school this week launched a campaign to keep the four-year-old and her parents in the country, saying they fear her life is at risk if she returns to Turkey.
