Bibby Stockholm: First group of asylum seekers brought back on board

The first group of asylum seekers has been brought back on board the Bibby Stockholm barge in Dorset, two months after the legionella bacteria was found in its water supply.

Protestors gathered outside the gates to the port at Portland, describing conditions on the barge as “inhumane”, while the Home Office insisted that it was now “safe and secure”.
