Family's plea to be reunited with son stranded in UK

A family living in Australia are pleading to be allowed to reunite with their teenage son, who is stranded in the United Kingdom due to border lockdowns.

The Fletcher family moved from the UK to Perth last August on working visas.

Eldest son Taylor, 16, stayed behind to finish his Year 11 exams.

The plan was for him to rejoin the family in June or July – but then came COVID-19.

The family say they were unable to get Taylor to Australia in time when the border restrictions were announced.

The lockdown laws mean that only permanent residents or Australian citizens are allowed back into the country.

The Fletcher family don't qualify.

They plan to apply again for an exemption.
