Crosspool’s friendly Big Issue in the North seller Mohammed Iqbal is to be reunited with his family this week after six years away.

He’s making the long-awaited trip back to Pakistan for eight weeks where he’ll see his wife and 11-year-old son for the first time since he arrived in the UK.

He hopes his family will be able to join him in the UK at some point in the future.

Mohammed is a regular in Crosspool, selling Big Issue in the North from his pitch outside Spar. In 2013 he won a special award for being the magazine’s most dedicated vendor.
