Controversy surrounded Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre for the second time in a week when a female A-Level student was forcibly removed just before her exams.

Yashika Bageerathi, 19, was taken from the centre, in Thurleigh Road, Clapham, on Wednesday to board a flight to Mauritius despite her mother, brother and sister still living in Enfield.

The young woman had been detained at Yarl’s Wood since March 19 with her case being the subject of a campaign by her London classmates and Oasis Academy Hadley school.
