A Nepalese orphan adopted by a wealthy Englishman was celebrating yesterday after a deportation order against him was reversed by new Home Secretary Jack Straw. Jay Khadka, 20, was never granted a residence permit after he arrived in Britain seven years ago and was adopted by businessman Richard Morley, whose castle he is due to inherit. Mr Straw accepted the recommendation of the Immigration Appeal Tribunal that Mr Khadka should not be deported. Mr Straw's statement read: 'There is not the slightest danger that Mr Khadka would ever become a burden on public funds. 'Any public interest there may be in immigration control in general is outweighed in this case by the circumstances relevant to it.' Mr Khadka appeared to be 'a young man of promise and it would be regrettable if that promise were to be fundamentally affected', it said. Mr Khadka, who stands to inherit a castle in the historic Forest of Dean, western England, toasted the decision with champagne. He had been due to go to the High Court in London today after winning a judicial review of former home secretary Michael Howard's decision to deport him. Mr Morley said: 'It has been six years of worry trying to win the right for our son to remain with us. 'We are overjoyed the new Government stood firm on human rights and has given all those who seek compassion fresh hope.' Mr Morley made Jay his adopted heir after what he claims was a debt of honour with the young man's late father, Basu, who saved Mr Morley's life in 1984 while on a trekking expedition. Mr Morley said he felt duty-bound to give the man's son the best life possible.
