Turkish Airline passengers help man resist deportation

This is the moment passengers on a flight from London to Turkey stop a man from being deported from the UK by demanding that he is taken off the plane.

The man was brought onto the Turkish Airlines flight at Heathrow Airport shortly before it was due to depart for Istanbul on Tuesday afternoon, accompanied by four officials.

Dramatic video footage shows the man screaming at the top of his lungs, shouting that he is being separated from his family and being taken to Somalia, frightening other passengers.

Following a stand-off captured during which Home Office staff can be heard assuring fliers that the man is not in danger, he was eventually removed to the cheers of fellow passengers.

In the footage, the man can be heard screaming loudly from his seat in the back of the plane, while Home Office staff try to block the view of passengers demanding and explanation to the delay and the noise. 

Two Home Office staff try to reassure passengers that ‘it will quiet down’ once they are airborne, but the man keeps on screaming loudly.

One official said: ‘It’s an attempt to get himself thrown off the aircraft so he can stay in the UK.’

When some passengers tell the Home Office officials that the man’s continuous screaming is scaring them, one of the staff members, dressed in a high-vis vest responds: ‘Hang on, how many of you have babies?

‘How many of them scream? You wont get scared when they scream. ‘

When a passenger points out the man being deported says he is going to Mogadishu in Somalia, the officer says: ‘And you believe him?’

He later responds to a passenger’s claim that people die in Mogadishu with: ‘They die in London, sir.’

The Home Office worker then tells passengers he has been to Mogadishu several times and it was ‘all right’.

Another video clip shows rows of passengers demanding that the man is taken off the plane.

A male passenger walks up to the back row of the plane, where two Home Office staff are seated either side of the man, and tells the officials the man claims he is being separated from his family.

According to a witness, passengers continue to argue with the Home Office staff members, saying they do not know if the man is a criminal.

Eventually, the man is removed off the plane to the cheers of the passengers, and one can be heard shouting that he is ‘a free man’. 

MailOnline has contacted Turkish Airlines and the Home Office for comment.
