Thank You all for replying, it does ease my mind a hell of a lot.

I am sure there's nothing too much to worry about at the moment, like you say, these Rules take a long to time to be passed through Government.

Does anyone know when it changed from 16-18, did it go through Government or was it just enforced?

Not sure exactly when the minimum age of 18 came in but it was simply a change to the Immigration Rules .. effectively nodded through Parliament without any debate at the time ..... except one or two MPs who had been campaigning on the issue congratulating Ministers.
