UK to pay up to £200m in compensation to Windrush victims
The home secretary said there would be no cap on the fund, making it impossible to estimate how much money will eventually be paid to victims. Payments will not be restricted to people from the Caribbean but made to anyone who has been in the UK since 1988 who has been wrongly classified as being here illegally and as a result lost the right to work, access to healthcare and the ability to rent property.

The total number of those affected by the scandal remains unknown, but more than 5,000 people have been granted documentation by the Windrush taskforce in the past year, confirming that they have a legal right to live in the UK; 3,674 of them have been granted British citizenship.
