Samim Bigzad, a failed asylum seeker from Afghanistan, could not hide his delight at having returned at London's Heathrow airport on Sunday, after a High Court injunction against a UK Home Office decision to deport him to Kabul.

Footage filmed by his lawyer at the airport shows Bigzad saying, "I just feel really happy. I'm so happy. I'm really happy. Back to my home."

Bigzad, 22, had been living in the UK illegally for two years before being deported, after a failed attempt last month, and says he feared beheading at the hands of the Taliban in his homeland causing a legal battle.
