First migrant flight to Rwanda set for take off on Tuesday

The Metro says A Government minister has insisted that a first deportation flight taking refugees to Rwanda will go ahead next week, despite last-ditch attempts to stop it.

Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis said he was comfortable with the policy amid a row about its legality and Prince Charles’ apparent views of it.

Asked earlier today on Sky News’ Sophy Ridge if the Government expects the flight to take off, he said: ‘Yes we do.’

It comes after a High Court ruling on Friday paved the way for a flight to the east African country to go ahead on Tuesday – though an appeal is due to be heard on Monday.
