Two staff members at the Yarl's Wood detention centre have been suspended from duty following the broadcast of a Channel 4 News investigation which revealed questions over standards of care at the holding facility.
Home Office Minister Karen Bradley told MPs today that the Serco employees were suspended over "serious and deeply concerning" allegations which were made after staff were filmed referring to the detention centre's inmates as "animals" and "beasties".
Ms Bradley said: "Serco immediately suspended one member of staff who could be identified from information available before broadcast and have suspended another having seen the footage."
