The story of a Syrian family in their home of adoption

BBC 2's 'Newsnight' last evening told the story of the Badreddin family from Syria.

The family came to Britian under a programme launched by the then British prime minister, David Cameron.

On their arrival, BBC filmed their first steps in the their new country. While filming, their son, Omar Badreddin, was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in Leazes Park in Newcastle.

Yesterday in Newcastle Court Omar was found not guilty.

The approximately 25-minute 'Newsnight' clip is a moving story of how an innocent family suffered so much in their country of adoption.

The programme ran from 22.30 yesterday and excellent television.
