Thirty-two Jamaicans - including six women - were deported from the United Kingdom Thursday.

That's the official figure given by assistant commissioner of police, Devon Watkis.

The number is lower than the approximately 50 Jamaicans who were expected to be returned on a special charter flight from the UK.

ACP Watkis says the privately chartered plane with the deportees landed at Norman Manley International Airport, in Kingston, shortly after 10:00 Thursday morning.

It appears some Jamaicans who were scheduled for deportation were granted a reprieve.

The deported group was taken away from the airport by JCF personnel and carried to the mobile reserve on South Camp Road, in St. Andrew for processing.

ACP Watkis says they'll receive help from non-governmental organisations.
