Fred Nukagem (pictured), aged 37, Sandra Yonga Mbell, aged 29, and their three children were due to fly out this morning but their flights have now been cancelled.
The Middleport family, who were arrested on Wednesday, were still being held in a detention centre in Bedfordshire in the early hours of today.
Mr Nukagem said: "I'm very happy our flights have been cancelled."
All this after the family were originally arrested, detained and eventually got a reprieve on the grounds that the children's vaccinations were not up to date.
Fred Nukagem said that he would sue the authorities, which caused upset among the people following this story.
The family home was again raided at dawn again last week, Mr Nukagem forced on the floor naked and restrained in front of his wife and children.
They were told that they were sure to be deported this time, only for the flight tickets to be cancelled.
Whether you agree with this case or not, it can not be right that this family have been pinballed from one place to another.
It doesn't matter if they were here illegally, they still have the right to be treated like human being and not some post office parcel!
What do you think of this families plight? Over to you.................................
