A UK grandmother of six says she is gutted after her young Nigerian husband was denied a visa for the third time.

The Sun reports that Angela Nwachukwu (72) from Dorchester in Dorset, met CJ Nwachukwu, 27, on Facebook. They got engaged on Skype and when she visited him for the first time they ended up tying the knot.

“After the wedding, I found it hard leaving CJ. I knew I’d see him again soon but my family visa application was rejected. I was so determined to get him a visa I hired lawyers to fight for us. I’ve since visited him twice.

“We’ve spent a combined £20,000 trying to see each other. I’ve used my savings and he has gradually paid me back half.”
