    A flight is due to leave London’s Heathrow Airport on Wednesday, carrying about 50 people being deported to Jamaica.

    Some of them have been living in the United Kingdom for decades.

    Campaigners are trying to stop the flight – saying the deportations are racially discriminatory and are ripping families apart.

    The UK government says the deportees are dangerous criminals.
