The family of a couple killed by an illegal immigrant drink-driver have blamed Britain’s shambolic border controls.

Failed asylum seeker Eduard Mereohra, 26, was kicked out of the country in 2009 but slipped back in just months later.

On New Year’s Day, still drunk from a party the night before, he ploughed into a car carrying grandparents David and Dorothy Metcalf, killing them both and tearing a loving family apart.

Yesterday, after he was jailed for nine years, the couple’s family said they would still be alive today if the immigration system had not let them down.

They demanded an official investigation into how the Moldovan national was able to make a mockery of our border controls.

The court was told that Mereohra had even obtained a work permit and national insurance number under his real name, but last night this was disputed by the Home Office and the Department for Work and Pensions.
