Deportation decision deferred

A decision on whether a Sheffield asylum seeker should be deported to Uganda has been deferred. Odette Sefuko was to be flown back to Africa tonight but campaigners fighting to keep her in the UK have been in court today to ask for the right to appeal against the UK Border Agency's decision.

The deferment is to wait for results of DNA tests to prove her identity. Her supporters now hope she will be allowed back to Sheffield on bail. Odette is currently being held at a detention centre near Bedford.
