Quakers from Chelmsford, Oxford, Hastings, Cambridge and London were outside Chelmsford Crown Court on 6 February to support to support Brighton Quaker Lyndsay Burtonshaw and the other members of the Stansted 15. Most of them received community order sentences for their efforts to prevent an immigration deportation flight, though uncertainty around their case continues.

As a Sanctuary Meeting, Chelmsford Quakers are working to create a culture of welcome in Britain, end deportations and detention, and challenge racism in all its forms. Over the past six months they have also been looking after the Stansted defendants with hot drinks, food, accommodation and upholding them in their prayers.
