Stiven Bregu

A teenager threatened with deportation from the UK after being trafficked from Albania has received his A-level results and will begin work next month.

Stiven Bregu, 18, was smuggled into the UK in the back of a lorry in 2015 to escape a violent home life, and was dumped alone in Keynsham, near Bristol.

Unable to speak English, he was placed in foster care, but has now collected his A-level results in maths, biology and chemistry at St Mary Redcliffe and Temple School in Bristol.

Stiven will join Bristol-based wealth management firm Rowan Dartington after winning an accountancy apprenticeship.

While preparing to sit his exams, he was told he was being deported from the UK after his application for asylum was rejected.

Teachers and friends launched a campaign to keep him in Bristol and it was signed by more than 90,000 people. He later learned his appeal had been successful and he can remain in the UK.
