Up to ten migrants have already asked to be returned home rather than risk having their claims for refugee status assessed in the African nation.

They had begun the asylum process here but withdrew their applications after the new policy was announced last month.

The news is a boost to Home Secretary Priti Patel as it offers the first sign that her plan, to deter migrants from making the journey across the Channel โ€“ is beginning to work.

It has been revealed that almost 100 migrants have now been given notices that they will be sent to Rwanda.

Home Office officials hope the number abandoning their claims will increase rapidly once the first flights to Rwanda begin next month.
