Rwanda asylum plan: Appeal to be heard in court
BBC News says The Court of Appeal is set to decide later whether to allow the first Home Office flight to depart to Rwanda with asylum seekers.
Campaigners and migrants last week failed to win an injunction against the government policy in the High Court.
But it is thought the number facing removal to Rwanda’s capital Kigali on Tuesday has fallen to single figures.
The UK says sending some asylum seekers who arrive illegally to Rwanda will undermine smuggling gangs.
The appeal has been brought by Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS), who represent 80% of Border Force staff, along with the charities Care4Calais and Detention Action.
