A man whose wife has been blocked from entering the UK has discovered his house was destroyed by a fire after it was turned into a cannabis farm by suspected illegal immigrants.  The blaze left Michael Grieve, 47, on the verge of bankruptcy while he remains in Ireland with his wife after the Home Office refused to grant her a visa. The graphic designer’s South African wife, Athena Grieve, was refused re-entry despite the couple being married in the UK less than two years ago. They have been residing in Ireland, where her passport was accepted, while they attempt to appeal the decision. The chair of the Labour Party, Ian Lavery, who has been supporting the family, accused the Home Office of “continually frustrating” what he said should be a straight forward case, due to its “over-zealous” hostile immigration policies. The couple had made arrangements to let their house while they stayed in Ireland temporarily while they prepared Ms Grieve’s settlement visa application for the UK. In March, they were told the police had discovered a cannabis farm at the property. British man blocked from entering UK with his wife discovers his house has been transformed into a cannabis farm
