If you have never met this person face to face, it is very likely that he is a scammer.
The person may say that they are in the UK, but they could easily be in Africa, scamming people like you. Such dating scams are very common.
You should not send any more money to the person and it would be almost impossible to recover the money you have already sent this person as these people could be part of organised crime syndicates.
I would advise you to stop all communication with the person.
