A second wave of migrants is expected to be sent back from Greece to Turkey today as part of an EU deal to reduce the numbers reaching Europe.

The first group arrived in Turkey on Monday, but since then the process has stalled, partly due to a surge in last-minute asylum applications in Greece.

It is thought another two boats will arrive on Friday carrying migrants expelled from Greece under the EU deal.

Around 200 people, mainly Pakistanis, were sent back to Turkey on Monday.
