Stansted runway closed after anti-deportation protesters block flight
Eight activists attempt to stop charter flight scheduled to carry eight deportees to Nigeria and Ghana
The runway at Stansted was closed on Tuesday night after protesters ran out in a bid to prevent a plane carrying eight deportees from taking off.
The campaign group End Deportations said eight activists had locked themselves to a tripod to stop a “mass deportation charter flight” from the Essex airport to Nigeria and Ghana.
