Thug hit emergency workers months after Sir Keir Starmer fought against his deportation

A TUG hit an emergency worker shortly after Sir Keir Starmer campaigned against his deportation, we can reveal.

Damian Morgan, 41, assaulted a 999 operator three months after he was pulled from the deportation flight to Jamaica in February 2020.

A judge at Lincoln Crown Court jailed him for 15 months in May that year for assaulting an emergency worker.

Sir Keir and other Labor MPs had called for “all future charter flights to be suspended” in an open letter.

We can also reveal that two other drug-trafficking criminals due to be deported on the same flight are returning to British prison.

Theodore Carlyle was due to be sent to Jamaica but last year he was jailed for five years and seven months at Harrow Crown Court for “possession with intent to supply a class A drug”.

And Courtney Javal Williams, who was also due to be on the flight, was jailed in 2021 at Chelmsford Crown Court for four years for trafficking heroin and crack cocaine.

Tory Party chairman Greg Hunts said: “These revelations show that people are right to be suspicious of Sir Keir Starmer.

“Only a few years ago he was campaigning to keep violent foreign criminals in Britain.

“But now he’s telling people he’s tough on crime.”

Last week, The Sun revealed that heroin dealer Akiva Heaven, who had served four years for a drug offence, was jailed again in May 2021 for dealing cocaine and heroin in Southsea, Hants. He had also avoided deportation.

Barrington Laing was jailed again last November for six months for carrying a knife after getting off a flight.

And Tajay Thompson was given 15 months for drug dealing, but since he was allowed to stay, he was jailed for beating up a mum.

Labor says Sir Keir had nothing to do with processes that allowed these men to remain in the UK.

A Labor spokeswoman said: “The idea that a letter from the MPs inquiry process led to dangerous criminals committing crime is as poor as this government’s handling of the Home Office.”
