The Home Secretary has said there’s no limit to the amount of compensation which could be paid to victims of the Windrush scandal, as he revealed details of the long-awaited scheme.

Sajid Javid said the overall cost was likely to be around £200 million, admitting that “nothing we say or do will ever wipe away the hurt, the trauma and the loss that should never have been suffered”.
