Supreme Court rules Rwanda scheme unlawful

The Supreme Court has ruled that the Rwanda asylum policy is unlawful, in a major blow for Rishi Sunak's promise to "stop the boats".

Five justices at the UK's highest court unanimously rejected the government's appeal over its policy of removing asylum seekers to the east African nation if they arrive by unauthorised means.
