Britain is home to more than 750 foreign criminals including killers and rapists who have gone on the run after being granted bail before they could be deported, new figures reveal.

The offenders were due to be deported at the end of their prison sentences but delays meant they were released onto Britain’s streets under human rights laws, then disappeared.

Among the 752 criminals from overseas who remain on the loose in Britain, at least one was guilty of conspiracy to murder while others had committed manslaughter, according to the Home Office.
