The first boats carrying migrants being deported from Greece to Turkey have departed under an EU plan aimed at easing mass migration to Europe.

Scores of migrants were seen boarding ferries on the Greek island of Lesbos early today.

They are being sent to Dikili, western Turkey. Turkish officials said they expected to receive around 500 people.

The EU-Turkey deal has been attacked by rights groups and there are concerns over a lack of preparation.
