Britain Detained – Immigration Detention in the UK

Support us and go ad-free

The UK is the only country in the EU without a time limit on detention, meaning immigration detainees can be held indefinitely. There are nine immigration removal centres in Britain, some run by the prison service and some by private companies such as G4S and Serco. Conditions are similar to category B prisons, although without knowing how long they are being held, some detainees and supporters have described them as worse than prison.

This important short film, made by Ross Field from Videoblogg Productions, explores Britain’s inhumane detention system and is shared here with their permission.
