The ‘Stansted 15’ activists, who stopped a government-chartered aircraft from deporting 60 people to Nigeria and Ghana in March 2017, avoided jail sentences after being found guilty of endangering an aerodrome under the 1990 Aviation and Maritime Security Act. The fifteen activists broke into Stansted airport by cutting the fence and laying beneath the plane whilst securing themselves to one another. The protestors claim that subsequently 11 of those on that flight were allowed to stay within the UK, two of whom were victims of human trafficking. Three of the activists were given suspended prison sentences and 12 were sentenced to community service.
