  3. I wonder if Alex made it back to the UK in the end. I know he was talking about getting a recording contract or something.

    What happened to them was absolutely disgusting. They were perfectly nice people all the kids in education, Alex was on the same college course I was and he was a nice guy.

    But rather than getting rid of illegal immigrants who are causing hassle etc, they chose? a nice family who were settled into the community, smashed down the door, and treated them like animals.
