Granted Entry: Tulbahadur Pun VC

Victoria Cross winner Tul Bahadur Pun has been given the right to live in the UK. Immigration Minister Liam Byrne has now said his case is "exceptional" and he will be granted a visa due to a "heroic record in the service of Britain".

"This decision was not taken lightly and reflects the extraordinary nature of this case, in particular Mr Pun's heroic record in service of Britain which saw him awarded the Victoria Cross," Mr Byrne said. "It is entirely right that this record should not only be recognised but honoured. We have also taken into consideration his current medical condition."

One word: Good.
