Migrant families sleeping on floor of Kent immigration centre for weeks, MPs report


MPs from the Home Affairs select committee have visited the Manston immigration processing centre in Kent, amid concerns about conditions and overcrowding.

The Home Office says the situation there has improved, although the MPs said they’d seen families who had been sleeping on the floor for weeks.

Rishi Sunak, who met the French president yesterday, says the two countries are in the “final stages” of a deal to tackle illegal migration across the channel.
