sheila Canadian singer Allison Crowe refused entry to UK (83* d) Allison Crowe refused entry to UK 28 May 09


from an article in today's 'Northern Times', a newspaper for the north of Scotland -

"INTERNATIONALLY renowned Canadian singer Allison Crowe, on her way to stay with friends in North-West Sutherland last week, was held for 11 hours at Gatwick Airport in London by immigration officials – and then deported back home.

And all because she and fellow band members had failed to obtain a Certificate of Sponsorship from venues they were due to play at, a little-known visa requirement following legislation brought in last November to combat illegal immigration and terrorism."
