In his Easter homily, the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby stressed that the government’s plan to send some asylum seekers from the UK to Rwanda was “the antithesis of God’s nature”.

Welby said Christ’s resurrection is not the time to “subcontract our responsibilities.”

He also called for a ceasefire in Ukraine and spoke of his concern about the cost of living crisis.

The government says the change is necessary to protect people’s lives from people smugglers.
