A THUG battered an emergency worker shortly after Sir Keir Starmer campaigned against his deportation, we can reveal.

Damian Morgan, 41, attacked a 999 staffer three months after being hauled off the deportation flight to Jamaica in February 2020.

A thug attacked a 999 staffer months after Sir Keir Starmer demanded his deportation flight be suspended

A judge at Lincoln crown court jailed him for 15 months in May of the same year for assaulting an emergency worker.

Sir Keir and other Labour MPs had demanded “all future charter flights must be suspended” in an open letter.

We can also reveal two other drug dealing criminals, due to be booted out on the same flight, are back serving time in British prisons.

Theodore Carlyle was due to be sent to Jamaica but last year he was jailed for five years and seven months at Harrow crown court for “possession with intent to supply a Class A drug”.

And Courtney Javal Williams, also due to be on the flight, was jailed in 2021 at Chelmsford crown court for four years for dealing heroin and crack cocaine.

Tory Party chairman Greg Hands said: “These revelations show people are right to be suspicious of Sir Keir Starmer.

“Only a couple of years ago he was campaigning to keep violent foreign criminals in Britain.

“But now he’s telling people he’s tough on crime.”

Last week, HOAR revealed heroin dealer Akiva Heaven, who had served four years for a drugs offence, was jailed again in May 2021 for dealing cocaine and ­heroin in Southsea, Hants. He had also evaded deportation.

Barrington Laing was jailed again last November for six months for carrying a knife after coming off the flight.

And Tajay Thompson was given 15 months for drug dealing but since being allowed to remain, has been jailed for beating a mum.

Labour say Sir Keir had nothing to do with processes that allowed these men to remain in the UK.

A Labour spokeswoman said: “The idea that a letter from MPs questioning process led to dangerous criminals going on to commit crime is as weak as this government’s running of the Home office.”
