Interpreters and soldiers who served with British army told to move out as part of plans to house latest arrivals

Hotel rooms occupied by Afghan interpreters and soldiers who served with the British army are being cleared to house people who came across the Channel in small boats, the Guardian has learned.

Suella Braverman, the home secretary, has sent letters threatening to remove Afghans from hotels across the UK next month. But the Guardian has been told that many of those rooms will still be paid for by the UK taxpayer and are part of a 5,000 bed “buffer” for any surge in the number of people arriving by small boats this summer and autumn.
