Britain's Times newspaper has reported that a killer who stabbed a father to death outside a pub and a rapist who targeted a teenage girl were among the offenders whose deportations to Jamaica were blocked this week.
Fitzroy Daley,43, repeatedly stabbed his victim after a minor scuffle outside a pub in east London and was jailed for ten years in 2013.
Fabian Henry was jailed the same year after he raped a teenage girl in Bristol and groomed and abducted another.
Henry, who was 30 at the time, was sentenced to 12 years.
The pair were among dozens of Jamaican-born offenders who won an 11th-hour reprieve when they were taken off a deportation flight on Tuesday after a series of legal challenges.
Eight people who were spared from deportation to Jamaica on Tuesday are to have their cases reviewed by Britain's Home Office.
Human rights campaigners said the individuals came to the UK as children and some were sentenced for drug offences when they were young.
