Home secretary Priti Patel has been urged to release the review into the scandal as soon as possible by the author of the report.

Wendy Williams submitted her report to the Home Secretary on Wednesday.

Williams said: 'I have today submitted my report into what lessons should be learnt from the Windrush scandal to the home secretary.
