When is an asylum seeker not an asylum seeker?

At some point in the last few hours (just gone 6pm on 24 March) the headline on this story on the Mail website has changed from 'Asylum seeker jailed for life for stabbing policeman to death' to NHS blunders left cannabis-crazed schizophrenic free to stab policeman to death.

It appears Tennyson Obih did seek asylum in the UK in 2000 and was granted indefinite leave to remain. Therefore, he's not an asylum seeker. Glad to see the Mail did work this out, even if it did take a while.
