A Scientologists' spokesman said yesterday that they planned to issue writs for alleged libel and appeal to the European Council on Human Rights.

Mr David Griman, speaking from the Scientology World Headquarters at East Grinstead, Sussex, said the writs would be served to parties who, he claimed, had reported their activities unfairly and with gross inaccuracy.

Seven Americans, including five children, who landed at Heathrow Airport, London, yesterday were sent back to New York. They said they were to attend a music festival, but their tickets were said to be made out in the same way as those of Scientology students and had been paid for from the same source.

The Home Office said later that entry was refused because the Americans had insufficient funds to support themselves.
