Damages – Personal injury. The force used by the defendant's immigration escorts in attempting to board the claimant onto an aircraft, as well as the force used in taking him off the same aircraft, had been unlawful and had directly led to his injuries. Accordingly, the Queen's Bench Division awarded the claimant a total of £48,000 damages, which included claims for physical and mental injuries, aggravated damages and exemplary damages.
