Plans to double the size of Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre in north Bedfordshire have been scrapped.

The news was revealed to North East Beds MP Alistair Burt in a letter from Home Office minister Damian Green.

Mr Burt said “I welcome this letter from the Home Office confirming that construction will now not go ahead on the Centre as it is currently unaffordable.

“Although the decision to delay construction will be unsettling for constituents I will continue to work with colleagues in the Home Office to ensure that any other options proposed by the UK Border Agency are right for the detention centre and for my constituents in Bedfordshire.”

The full story will appear in this week’s Times & Citizen. Source: BedfordToday.
