Eleven people have been arrested during a protest against migration controls outside an immigration detention centre near Heathrow.

Members of the No Borders network said they were trying to stop a flight to Ghana to deport illegal migrants.

Scotland Yard said the demonstration at Harmondsworth involved about 30 people and lasted from 18:00 GMT on Tuesday until 01:30 on Wednesday.

The UK Border Agency said it could not comment on deportation flights.
