2 years ago I had a flight from New Delhi > London > Bahamas. The flight from New Delhi to London was delayed, causing me to miss the flight to the Bahamas. The airline very kindly offered me a stay in a hotel and transport for two days as the next direct flight was 2 days later. I only had a DATV visa so I knew that was not possible. The airline official asked me to at least ask the immigration officer if in this special situation, would I be permitted to exit the airport as it was the airline's fault. Obviously, I wasn't permitted.
Does this count as "Refused entry at the border" in a new UK DATV application and should I include this in my application?
