Pets before people? – These Afghans say animals were taken from Kabul to the UK ahead of them

It was a row over cats and dogs that became a political scandal. Last summer, animal rights campaigners chartered a plane to transport vets and animals to the UK from Kabul.

But only the animals made it out and the plane left without the Afghans despite having 229 empty seats. Now this programme has learned that some of those who say they were meant to be on that flight, still remain stranded and feel abandoned.
