Revealed: Just one in five lone ‘child’ migrants caught lying about their age are thrown out of Britain
Only one in five lone child migrants caught lying about their age in a bid to stay in the UK is deported, damning figures have revealed.
More than 2,500 of the 13,600 unaccompanied child asylum seekers who have come to Britain since 2010 have been found to be over 18. But fewer than 600 have been returned home.
The statistics expose the extent to which some adult migrants are trying to deceive the authorities.

Our Government seems unable to deport illegal immigrants – even if it knows where they are
Mr Clark was invited on to talk about the Government’s plan – as part of the upcoming Immigration Bill – to give extra powers to landlords to evict tenants who are found to have no rights to be living here in Britain.

EU migrant crisis: Sweden may reject 80,000 asylum claims
Sweden may reject the asylum applications of up to 80,000 migrants and should prepare to deport them, the interior minister says.
Anders Ygeman said charter aircraft would be used to deport the migrants but it would take several years.
Some 163,000 migrants applied for asylum in Sweden in 2015, the highest per capita number in Europe.
The numbers have fallen significantly since Sweden imposed tighter border controls this year.
Along with Germany, the Scandinavian country is a prime destination for refugees and other migrants entering the EU illegally.
Refugee crisis: Afghanistan ruled safe enough to deport asylum-seekers from UK
Hundreds of failed asylum-seekers, including former child migrants, are to be sent back to Afghanistan after the Court of Appeal ruled that deportations can be resumed.
A blanket ban on deportations back to the war-ravaged country was imposed in August last year amid concerns that it was too dangerous. Swathes of territory are controlled by the Taliban, and Isis is establishing a foothold.
