Harmondsworth: Detainees cause disturbance at London immigration centre

A group of detainees understood to be armed with weapons at a west London immigration centre caused a “disturbance” during a power outage, the Home Office has said.

No one was injured during the incident overnight at Harmondsworth detention centre near Heathrow Airport, according to the department.

Electricity issues began on Friday around 3pm and still remain on Saturday afternoon, Sky News reports, and at least one coach filled with detainees was seen leaving the premises.
