As reported by This is Hull and East Riding, a man from Hill who was living out his dreams on a heavenly island has been deported back to England, twenty years after he left. Stephen Tomlinson, along with his wife Kirsty, was given under a month to get out of Bermuda, even though their two children had been born on the island.

They are now back living with relatives in East Yorkshire, but the couple have decided to call on the UK Government to battle their case. Stephen says that his daughter cries herself to sleep while his other kids ask when they are going home. He says he does not understand how the authorities could do this to his family after they had been there for so long.

The family had to sell all their belongings and leave, despite having worked very hard and paying their way, said the 45-year-old father. Stephen, who is a paint sprayer, asked friends to fight for his family’s right to stay. However, the Bermudan Government were not convinced.

He fears that more expatriates could be told to leave Bermuda as its government becomes stricter about immigration. He says people from Hull are still out there, while more UK natives will also be deported. They can build up a life there only to later be kicked out, he added.
