BREAKING: Rwanda deportation appeal is dismissed by Court of Appeal

Sky News published this video item, entitled “BREAKING: Rwanda deportation appeal is dismissed by Court of Appeal” – below is their description.

The Court of Appeal has ruled the first deportation flight taking asylum seekers to Rwanda can go ahead tomorrow.

Rights campaigners have argued that the government policy is inhumane and will put migrants at risk.

But officials have said the strategy will deter people from making dangerous Channel crossings from France in flimsy small boats run by smugglers.
