The first flight taking asylum seekers to Rwanda will take off and people who are not removed on Tuesday will be on subsequent flights, UK’s Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has said.
Seven or eight people are due to be removed on Tuesday, after dozens won legal cases to be taken off. But more legal challenges are set to be heard.
Three more legal challenges from people set to be flown to the east African nation’s capital Kigali are expected to be heard in the courts before the flight departs.
A last-ditch attempt to block the flight altogether was rejected by the Court of Appeal on Monday, however.
