Afghans saved from Kabul join town cricket match and call on UK to evacuate extended families
Telegraph, 06 Sep 2021
Afghans formerly employed by the British military who are now living in the UK have said that Home Secretary Priti Patel owes it to them to evacuate their extended families as well.
Shams and Nazir were safely evacuated from Kabul at the start of August with their wives and children, and have since been staying at a hotel in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire along with hundreds of other Afghan families.
The town's Baptist Church and council have been leading the resettling effort and organised a cricket match to welcome the families on Sunday.
