8:39 am on 25 January 2015

A New Zealand man with links to a motorcycle gang has been deported from Australia.

Australian immigration minister Peter Dutton said the man had been involved in several offences in Queensland since arriving in Australia last October and had links to a motorcycle gang in New Zealand.

He described the unnamed man as a perfect example of somebody not wanted in Australia.

A second man, from Britain, who had criminal links, was deported as well.

Australian authorities said both men arrived under escort in their respective countries earlier this week.
