At least 56,000 foreign nationals, including criminals and illegal migrants are on the run in Britain. They should have been deported but the Home Office has lost track of them. Potentially dangerous offenders who have given officials the slip include those who were held but then released into the community. A damning report by an independent inspector on the security shambles made "difficult reading" ministers admitted yesterday. It warned there was "little evidence" that effective action was being taken to locate the bulk of absconders, with nearly a third of planned deportations failing because of last ditch challenges. Charlie Elphicke, Tory MP for Dover, said last night: "This report is of serious concern. We cannot have a situation where convicted criminals and illegal immigrants are free to roam the streets. "We need to act urgently to locate these people and bring them to book. Any for foreign offenders found to have absconded should be booted out of Britain." The report will pile further pressure on Home Secretary Amber Rudd to pour more resources into the over-stretched Border Force budget. My thoughts.....I'll give them a clue....have a look under the M4 flyover in West London, a little "township" keeps re-appearing, as soon as it is moved on they come back again....there will be a few there for sure.
