A woman from Cardiff is fighting to stop her 19-year-old

:00:11.:00:14.

boyfriend being deported to Afghanistan tomorrow.

:00:15.:00:18.

Bashir Nadir arrived here as a child ten years ago,

:00:19.:00:21.

and was put into foster care, but is now due to be sent back.

:00:22.:00:25.

His girlfriend, and his foster mother, spoke

:00:26.:00:26.

to us from Oxfordshire, where he's being detained,

:00:27.:00:28.

Nicole Cooper with her boyfriend of two years, Bashir Nadir.

:00:29.:00:36.

Today, fighting back the tears, she told me how she was

:00:37.:00:39.

about to visit him for what could be the last time.

:00:40.:00:44.

Are here now with his foster mum...

:00:45.:00:53.

She says he fled Afghanistan after his father who was in the army

:00:54.:01:02.

His mother sold his father's land to provide the money to support

:01:03.:01:12.

Bashir to get out of harm's way and danger and came

:01:13.:01:16.

in the back of a lorry, things like that.

:01:17.:01:20.

He was educated in Cardiff at a Catholic school

:01:21.:01:22.

His foster mother, who has travelled the Oxfordshire

:01:23.:01:28.

immigration detention centre where he is being held,

:01:29.:01:30.

When he first come to me, we got told after five

:01:31.:01:37.

years he would be given a British passport.

:01:38.:01:38.

That hasn't been the case and he has fought ever since.

:01:39.:01:42.

He has had a long battle on his hands trying

:01:43.:01:44.

If he goes back to Afghanistan with that, he hasn't got a hope.

:01:45.:01:52.

Bashir's MP Jo Stephens says she believes his life will be

:01:53.:02:01.

She is working with his solicitor to try to suspend his deportation

:02:02.:02:06.

so that he can make a fresh application for leave to stay.

:02:07.:02:09.

The Home Office says it cannot comment on individual cases.

:02:10.:02:17.

Three people have been arrested in connection

:02:18.:02:20.

with the alleged murder of a man in a Denbighshire car park.

:02:21.:02:29.

48-year-old Mark Roy Mason was assaulted outside Home bargains

:02:30.:02:31.

The people arrested are NOT from the area.

:02:32.:02:34.

A recovery board is needed, to improve how the Welsh

:02:35.:02:38.

government's education department implements its policies.

:02:39.:02:41.

That's the call from the former head of one

:02:42.:02:44.

Dr Philip Dixon told BBC Wales' Sunday Politics

:02:45.:02:47.

programme that head teachers, schools and councils have been taken

:02:48.:02:49.

to task over standards in the last ten years -

:02:50.:02:51.

but not the department that runs education.

:02:52.:02:53.

Here's our Political Correspondent, Arwyn Jones.

:02:54.:03:00.

Over the past decade there have been concerns about how Wales s results

:03:01.:03:03.

at GCSE and A-level have lagged behind other parts of the UK.

:03:04.:03:09.

At the same time, Wales has slipped down the international league table

:03:10.:03:15.

which compares pupils from over 60 countries around the world.

:03:16.:03:17.

The tests are sat by 15-year-olds every three years concentrating

:03:18.:03:20.

In the last set of results, in maths, Wales fell three places

:03:21.:03:29.

In reading, the nation was ranked 41st, down from 38 and the biggest

:03:30.:03:33.

fall came in science where Wales dropped six places to joint 36.

:03:34.:03:39.

Over the past six years or so here at Welsh government HQ

:03:40.:03:43.

in Cardiff there's been a focus on driving up standards in schools

:03:44.:03:46.

in an attempt to improve those Pisa rankings.

:03:47.:03:49.

Headteachers have been sacked, schools and councils education

:03:50.:03:53.

departments have been placed into special measures

:03:54.:03:56.

and recovery boards coming in to take over control.

:03:57.:04:03.

But now a former teaching union rep says the problem may be

:04:04.:04:06.

with the Welsh government's own education department.

:04:07.:04:07.

He says it's failed to implement its policies well enough

:04:08.:04:10.

You set up a recovery board so you get those with track

:04:11.:04:18.

records in jurisdictions, the UK from Northern Ireland,

:04:19.:04:22.

Scotland and from England who can turn government departments around.

:04:23.:04:26.

You have some world leading experts as well and some experts from Wales

:04:27.:04:29.

but they would not be the dominant ones.

:04:30.:04:32.

And they will be focused on delivering.

:04:33.:04:35.

The next round of Pisa results are expected in December.

:04:36.:04:37.

The Welsh government says it has asked an international organisation,

:04:38.:04:40.

the OECD, to assess if its education reforms and strategy are working.

:04:41.:04:47.

World Rally champion Sebastien Ogier has won the Wales Rally GB

:04:48.:04:50.

The event came to a close in Llandudno this afternoon.

:04:51.:04:56.

For the last three days, around a hundred and fifty cars have

:04:57.:04:59.

sped through woodland in north and mid Wales.

:05:00.:05:03.

I like watching the finish, or to bring our grandson down

:05:04.:05:06.

I have heard loads of different accents, cars from all over

:05:07.:05:10.

It is local to me so I come and watch every year.

:05:11.:05:18.

Wales forward Gareth Bale has extended his contract

:05:19.:05:20.

The 27-year-old arrived at the Bernabeu in 2013,

:05:21.:05:27.

after signing what was then a world-record fee of eighty

:05:28.:05:29.

Time for a quick look at the weather forecast

:05:30.:05:35.

and after a fairly mild night, tomorrow any early fog and low cloud

:05:36.:05:38.

will lift through the morning, to leave some sunny spells

:05:39.:05:40.

I'll be back with our next update at 20 past ten.

:05:41.:05:48.

For now though, from everyone on the team, do enjoy your evening.

:05:49.:05:51.

abuses his power and he uses the system and he doesn't care

:05:52.:06:08.

Good evening. It has been a mild and a bit of a murky day. A lot of mist

:06:09.:06:15.

and low cloud, but also some warm

:06:16.:06:16.
