Barbaric detention of children at Yarl’s Wood must end – Huhne

Commenting on today’s HM Inspectorate of Prisons report into Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre, Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary, Chris Huhne said:

“This report completely refutes the Government’s often repeated claims that the detention of children only happens in exceptional circumstances for short periods.

“Children who have committed no crime are being held at Yarl’s Wood for months at a time. This barbaric practice has to stop now.”
