Zoya Nadeem lives with her mother and two brothers in Sheffield. They fled Pakistan following persecution because one of her brothers is gay.
Ms Nadeem has said she fears for her life if she returns to Pakistan She was held in the notorious Yarl’s Wood immigration centre in Berkshire, which is run by private security company Serco.
Friends in Sheffield are campaigning on the family’s behalf because their permanent residency in Britain has yet to be secured.
Campaigner Sheena Clarke said: “She was supposed to be put on a flight to Pakistan last Tuesday.
“Fortunately it was cancelled a few hours before she was due to board the flight. She is now back in Sheffield and is reunited with her mother and brothers. This is just a reprieve and the family is continuing to fight for their right to remain in the UK.”
