Truss: Rwanda flight will take off, unclear how many onboard

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss is confident the first deportation flight to Rwanda will "leave today" but says she doesn't "know exactly" how many people will be on it.

She reiterates the government's aim to break the "business model" of people smugglers and adds that the policy is also about dealing with the "overall issue" of illegal migration, which she describes as a "big problem".
