Man on UK’s ‘no-fly’ watchlist is airlifted from Kabul to Birmingham in apparent security breach

A man on the UK’s ‘no-fly’ list has mistakenly been flown into Birmingham as part of the British evacuation operation. 

The individual, who has not been identified by the Government, is on the list designed to block individuals who are believed to be a threat from getting to the UK.

According to Sky News, officials were alerted ‘overnight’ after the individual reached UK soil on a military plane.

A Home Office spokesman later told MailOnline that, after further investigation into the man’s background, officials had determined he is not a threat to the UK.

However, officials failed in their statement to explain why the man was not prevented from boarding the plane in Afghanistan, given the fact he was on the no-fly list.    

If he had posed a threat, officials would have been unable to return them to Afghanistan because all flights have been suspended. 

The news of his arrival in the UK emerged at a briefing for MPs by ministers and officials on Monday. 

MPs were reportedly told that a further four people who are on the no-fly list were spotted in Afghanistan and prevented from flying.

A Government spokesperson told Sky News that ‘there are people in Afghanistan who represent a serious threat to national security and public safety.’  

They added: ‘If someone is assessed as presenting as a risk to our country, we will take action.’ 

MailOnline has approached the Government for comment.

The news comes as a British man stuck in Afghanistan was today filmed waving a UK passport while pleading with Boris Johnson to ‘get me and my kids out of here’   

Speaking with a strong northern accent, the man was seen telling ITV film crews outside a temporary British embassy in Kabul that the army  was refusing to let him into the capital’s airport for evacuation.

After the short interview, the footage then then cut to two children who the broadcaster reports have allegedly been left behind in the streets after their parents were allowed into the embassy ‘without them’.

Flashing a British passport as he made his desperate plea, the man told ITV: ‘I’m a British citizen, my kids are British and we’re stuck here, they closed the door on us and they’re shooting at us.

‘My message for the prime minister is, just get us out of here otherwise my kids are struggling and we’re all in a big mess here. The British Army is right behind these fences, they’ve closed the gate and they’re not letting no one in.’    

Dozens also tried to enter the temporary British embassy today, but were turned away without an explanation while surrounding Taliban fighters fired guns into the air in the shocking scenes.

Some called out Joe Biden and Boris Johnson for abandoning them as the Taliban cement their grip on the country, with only eight days until the US deadline for withdrawing all troops from the country.

Meanwhile, the UK today warned there are ‘hours not weeks’ left for the Kabul airlift as it scrambles to double numbers to 12,000 – while Boris Johnson pleaded with the US to delay the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.
