An African migrant smuggled his seven-months pregnant wife into the UK in May and subsequently started doing drugs to support her.

Ali Camara, 25, who is originally from Guinea and holds UK citizenship, travelled to Zaragoza in Spain to collect his wife Oulimatoo Touray and gave her a stolen passport to enter the UK.

However, UK immigration officials at Stanstead Airport stopped them and arrested him. A court granted him bail soon afterwards.

Just days later, police arrested him after finding him in possession of 18 bags of cannabis worth thousands of pounds.

23-year-old Touray, who is from Gambia, has since given birth. In an interview with Daily Mail, she said she met Camara through social media and got married to him on his second visit to Gambia.

During the court hearing, Touray said: "I was going to come and stay with him because he had to work. He wanted to work to pay for the baby. He gave the baby everything and myself too. He really looked after me."
