A special charter flight carrying a group of Jamaican deportees left the United Kingdom (UK) shortly after midnight today, two British lobby groups have revealed.

Seven Jamaicans are on the flight, according Detention Action and Movement For Justice (MFJ).

There has been no public comment from the Jamaican Government about this latest deportation. 

One of the persons believed to be on the flight is a man who opened a restaurant in Birmingham after his release from prison five years ago.

National organiser at MFJ, Karen Doyle, said the Jamaican was a beloved figure in the community because he provided employment and supported various groups, including the police.
