CAMPSFIELD REVOLT! – after ‘violent removal’ of Algerian detainee

‘This will probably happen in other detention centres, the only time people listen is when there is a revolt,’ Bill MacKeith of Close Campsfield Campaign told News Line yesterday.

He was speaking after serious disturbances and a subsequent fire at the privately-run immigration removal centre left at least two inmates injured.

Seven staff were also injured.

MacKeith said: ‘My information is that at 6.30am guards went to arrest one or more detainees, most likely Algerians.

‘Other detainees witnessed the violent removal and began to protest.’
