First group of migrants will be informed this week of the Government\'s intention to relocate them to Rwanda

Home Secretary Priti Patel says this is just the first stage of the process

The Home Office has confirmed that the first group of illegal migrants will this week be informed of the Government’s intention to relocate them to Rwanda as part of its latest deportation policy.

Migrants who crossed the Channel will be among those to be notified by the Home Office that they face a one-way ticket to the East African nation.

The department added that the Government “has the power to detain individuals pending their removal from the UK”.

First flights are expected to take place in the coming months, the Home Office said, adding that lawyers for some of those affected will likely lodge claims to stop removal.
