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.

Next to Tinsley House the home Office have started building a new removal centre, called Brook House which will be a purpose-built secure facility with 426 male and female detention bedspaces to hold refused asylum seekers/persons 'Sans papiers' pending deportation from the UK.

...if anyone remembers the skinhead on the balcony surrounded by England flags taking photos of the demonstration with a tele-photo lens and taking notes, we're all probably in a pile ready to uploaded by redwatch.

If photos of the demonstration turn up, obviously taken from above and shown to be in the area near the flats, we'll know where they came from - and more importantly, some people will remember where this guy lived...
