Failed asylum seeker in burka deportation battle
A failed asylum seeker and his 11-year-old daughter are demanding they must not be deported to France - because she would be banned from wearing the burka.
The Muslim father, 42, says removing them from the UK and forcing them to live across the Channel would amount to a breach of her religious rights.
France banned women from wearing the burka - the full body covering - and the niqab or face veil in public three years ago.
