Man stages protest on roof of Swinderby immigration centre


A man has scaled the roof of an immigration removal centre as part of a “peaceful protest”, officials said today.

The demonstrator is on the roof of the Morton Hall centre in Swinderby, Lincolnshire, the UK Border Agency (UKBA) said.

"There is currently a peaceful protest ongoing at Morton Hall in which one detainee has scaled the roof," a UKBA spokeswoman said.

"We are working with the Prison Service to resolve the situation."
