Detainees at immigration centre subjected to inhumane treatment, says inquiry

The first public inquiry into abuses at an immigration detention centre in the UK found a ‘toxic culture’ – where detainees were subjected to inhumane and degrading treatment, ‘explicit racism’ and frequent misuse of force.

The inquiry has called for a series of sweeping reforms – including a twenty-eight day time limit for holding refugees, in line with the rest of Europe.
