Jamaica deportation row leaves 25 offenders in UK; HS2 green light; Pete Buttigieg's Oxford student days
25 foreign national offenders are still in the UK after being pulled from a deportation flight that was supposed to take them to Jamaica. The Evening Standard's Home Affairs Editor Martin Bentham explains how a legal row over mobile phones led to the Court of Appeal ruling the convicted prisoners had to stay. Also, it's over budget and behind schedule but HS2 has finally been given the go ahead by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and the Evening Standard is backing him. And, ahead of the New Hampshire Democratic Party primary, features writer Sam Fishwick's been looking at Pete Buttigieg's time at Oxford University, including how he allegedly snuck onto a north sea freighter to do his coursework in peace.
