A sports center manager is homeless and sleeping in his car after being caught up in the passport delay crisis.
Michael Jones, 25, has found his dream job at one of the world’s top university sports complexes in Saudi Arabia.
He applied for his first adult passport on February 28 and expected to receive it within five weeks.
He was told it would take 10 weeks but still hasn’t received it 15 weeks later.
If he doesn’t get it and flies by Friday, he could lose the £40,000-a-year job at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Jeddah.

Michael quit his old job in April and moved out of his flat in Barry, South Wales, expecting to be in Saudi Arabia already.
He slept in his car and blames it on a chest infection that took him to the hospital.
Michael said: “It’s a nightmare. I would be devastated if I lost the job – such a great opportunity.
“I know I’m one of thousands in the system, but my whole future is at stake.”
