An A-level student has been deported to Mauritius after a last ditch legal challenge to keep her in the UK failed on Wednesday night.

Earlier a High Court judge refused to grant an injunction to block the removal of 19-year-old Yashika Bageerathi.

The student, who has been in the UK since 2011, left on an Air Mauritius flight which took off from Heathrow Airport at 21:00 BST.
