The existence of centres where people are locked away for no crime on our own doorstep is shameful. What goes on inside
the centres is deeply concerning.. An undercover journalist published his findings in January 2004 in the Mirror that were then scrutinised - and upheld. Undercover reporters worked in the vans which transport detainees and in Oakington and produced a documentary shown in March 2005 exposing shocking racism and abuse carried out with our taxes by Global Solutions and Wakenhut. Global Solutions
run Campsfield House - and have been awarded the Bicester Accomodation Centre Contract. We don't want the centres and we don't want private firms making a profit from running the centres.
