Hi,

I'm sorry but i don't now what UKBA is.(We have never lived in the UK).He was oversees and was going back to Italy via Heathrow....Kind Regards

Expert:  INC replied 5 years ago.

Hi,

 

The UKBA is the United Kingdom Border Agency. It is the department responsible for Customs and Immigration functions.

 

I would suggest he inform the detention centre or the UK Border Agency that his ID is at Heathrow Police Station and that it be obtained from there. Alternatively, I suggest he instruct a lawyer to obtain the ID for him.

 

The lawyer will require a Letter of Authority to forward to the Police Station at Heathrow.

 

 

If you wish to discuss, please feel free to ask further questions.

 

Kind regards,

Thank you very much for your answer...Would you accept to be his lawyer or could you find some other lawyer that could have this letter of authority done and collect his D.L from Heathrow police station?

Hi,

 

Unfortunately, experts are not permitted to act for customers outside of the site.

 

I would suggest you look on the law society website, under the section Find A Solicitor, for a Solicitor near Heathrow. The Law Society website address is: www.lawsociety.org.uk

 

Alternatively, I can recommend Mr. Hassan Butt. You can contact him on 01189 585 855.
