Terror suspects are being deported to UK from war-torn countries ‘without the knowledge of British authorities’

The Government has said it has no idea how many terrorists may have been deported back to the UK.

Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes made the admission in a response to a parliamentary question lodged by Independent MP John Woodcock in January.

Mr Woodcock asked the Home Office for the number of UK nationals who have been deported ‘on suspicion of terror offences’ by country of deportation in each of the last five years.
