Alexander arrived in the UK in February 1961, aged 19.
He obtained his British Passport in 1971 and it expired in 1981. He paid £10 for the passport and £5 to register as British.
When it expired he was told he had to apply for a St Lucian passport and that was the beginning of his problems.
Two other respondents are currently locked out of the UK; one in Trinidad and one in Canada. Both had British passports which expired after St Lucia became independent. Their consulates refused to help them because they are ‘not British’.
