Home Office ‘disappointed’ after judge halts flight to deport asylum seekers

Correspondent

The Home Office say they are “bitterly disappointed” by a judge’s decision to stop a whole flight of asylum seekers from being deported to Spain, after lawyers argued they would face homelessness and destitution there.

The case centred on three men from Syria and Yemen who had travelled to the UK across the channel on small boats. Paraic O’Brien reports.
