Resistance, both inside and outside immigration removal centres, has been getting stronger and stronger. Hunger strikes, demos, riots and pickets have become a common occurrence.

Tinsley House Immigration Removal Centre at Gatwick, was the first purpose-built detention centre in the UK. It was opened in 1996 and has a capacity of 135 people, including families and children, with 11,000 detainees going through it each year.
