The case has been taken up by the town's MP, Liberal Democrat Stephen Lloyd.
He told the BBC:
"I am extremely angry at the callousness shown by the Home Office.
"To me this is an immigration decision which lacks compassion and basic decency, attributes which I know are front and centre with the vast majority of British people."Stephen has written to the immigration minister, James Brokenshire, asking him to intervene:
"I implore the minister to do the right thing; grant this grief-stricken family the temporary travel visas, and allow their kith and kin to pay their last respects to little Andrea."Over to you, Jimbo.
