UK Border Agency detaining children in degrading conditions at Heathrow


The UK Border Agency is detaining children in “degrading and disgraceful” conditions at Heathrow, according to an official watchdog.

The Heathrow independent monitoring board (IMB) says children of all ages are being detained at the airport for immigration purposes almost every day, and are sometimes kept overnight. They are held in rooms that are small, stuffy and have no natural light. There is no access to the open air, no sleeping accommodation and only hand basins for washing. They often share space with unrelated adults and can be held in these conditions for many hours.
