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

:00:13.:00:18.

being deported to Afghanistan tomorrow.

:00:19.:00:22.

Bashir Naderi arrived here as a child ten years ago,

:00:23.:00:25.

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

:00:26.:00:28.

His girlfriend, and his foster mother, spoke to us from Oxfordshire

:00:29.:00:31.

where he's being detained, as Caroline Evans reports.

:00:32.:00:36.

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

:00:37.:00:40.

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

:00:41.:00:44.

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

:00:45.:00:48.

Are here now with his foster mum...

:00:49.:00:56.

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

:00:57.:01:07.

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

:01:08.:01:14.

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

:01:15.:01:18.

in the back of a lorry, things like that.

:01:19.:01:22.

He was educated in Cardiff at a Catholic school

:01:23.:01:25.

His foster mother, who has travelled to the Oxfordshire

:01:26.:01:33.

immigration detention centre where he is being held,

:01:34.:01:35.

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

:01:36.:01:42.

years he would be given his British passport.

:01:43.:01:45.

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

:01:46.:01:47.

He has had a long battle on his hands trying

:01:48.:01:51.

to stay in this country. It is his home.

:01:52.:01:54.

He's got the Welsh twang. If he goes back to Afghanistan

:01:55.:01:57.

with that, he hasn't got a hope. It's just not fair.

:01:58.:02:00.

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

:02:01.:02:05.

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

:02:06.:02:11.

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

:02:12.:02:15.

The Home Office says it cannot comment on individual cases.

:02:16.:02:21.

A fourth person has been arrested in connection

:02:22.:02:24.

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

:02:25.:02:32.

48-year-old Mark Mason was assaulted outside Home Bargains in Rhyl

:02:33.:02:34.

The people arrested are not from north Wales

:02:35.:02:41.

Police want to speak to anyone who saw a black BMW X1

:02:42.:02:44.

The Eagles Meadow shopping centre in Wrexham was evacuated this

:02:45.:02:49.

afternoon, following a fire in one of the stores.

:02:50.:02:51.

No one was hurt but fire crews remained at the scene for several

:02:52.:02:54.

A recovery board is needed to improve how the Welsh

:02:55.:02:58.

government's education department implements its policies.

:02:59.:03:01.

That's according to the former head of one of Wales'

:03:02.:03:04.

Dr Philip Dixon told Sunday Politics Wales that head

:03:05.:03:10.

teachers, schools and councils have been taken to task over

:03:11.:03:13.

standards in the last decade, but not the department

:03:14.:03:16.

The Welsh Government says it's already asked

:03:17.:03:21.

an international organisation, the OECD, to assess if its education

:03:22.:03:23.

I think it needs to be set up as you would with a local authority.

:03:24.:03:31.

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

:03:32.:03:34.

records in the other jurisdictions, the UK from Northern Ireland,

:03:35.:03:37.

Scotland and from England who can turn government departments around.

:03:38.:03:40.

:03:41.:03:43.

but they would not be the dominant ones.

:03:44.:03:51.

:03:52.:03:57.

The event came to a close in Llandudno this afternoon.

:03:58.:04:02.

For the last three days, around 150 cars have

:04:03.:04:04.

sped through woodland in north and mid Wales.

:04:05.:04:07.

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

:04:08.:04:09.

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

:04:10.:04:14.

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

:04:15.:04:22.

Wales forward Gareth Bale has extended his contract

:04:23.:04:28.

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

:04:29.:04:34.

after signing for what was then a world-record fee, of ?85 million.

:04:35.:04:38.

Time for a quick look at the weather forecast

:04:39.:04:40.

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

:04:41.:04:44.

:04:45.:04:46.

for many of us in the afternoon. Highs of 15 Celsius.

:04:47.:04:50.

:05:09.:05:16.

broke it felt warm with temperatures up in the high
