The MP for Oxford West and Abingdon Layla Moran says she is now pressing the Government to ensure the community in Kidlington has a say on the future of the Campsfield site.

She wants to see support offered to anyone whose job has been affected and fair treatment of detainees, while ending indefinite detention altogether.
