A Home Office investigation has found that an adult asylum seeker posed as a schoolboy and was placed in a classroom of 15-year-olds.

A new inquiry has been launched to try to establish how the man, described by pupils as looking 30 years old, managed to spend six weeks as a Year 11 pupil at Stoke High School in Ipswich, Suffolk.

The former pupil, originally from the Middle East, now faces being deported after the official report established he was over 18.

The man, known as Siavash, can now be identified for the first time. He was first pictured on social media by a fellow pupil with the message: “How’s there a 30-year-old man in our maths class?”

Other pictures apparently from the man’s Facebook account showed him with a moustache, facial stubble and drinking from a bottle of beer.

Some parents were so concerned that they removed their children from school. The scandal prompted the school to remove the man, believed to be 6ft 1ins tall.

Although the Home Office refused to reveal what age he is now believed to be, it is understood from sources that he is being treated officially as an adult asylum seeker.

Well I certainly got this badly wrong as well. As I thought the pictures were of two different people, when published before

This is appalling though, how this has been allowed to happen.

The question is how many more, are being treated as children, when adults?

These asylum seekers who pretend to be children must think we're all idiots. The ones who believe them are.

When we saw the 'kids' on tele many said he was about thirty. The people letting him in must be blind. Also the teachers.

Is there anything to the idea that perhaps the people letting them in are too intimidated to call bullshit?

Also, shouldn't they have to convince two or three people first?
