Windrush: only one in four applicants have received compensation
Figure comes four years after people wrongly classified as illegal immigrants were promised redress
Only one in four applicants to the Windrush compensation scheme have received payments four years after the government promised redress for those wrongly classified by the Home Office as illegal immigrants.
Fewer than 7% of the 15,000 compensation claims the government originally expected have received a payment. Ahead of Windrush Day on Wednesday, claimants continued to report long delays and high levels of scepticism from officials handling their applications.
