An Algerian man, aged 51 years old, has died in an immigration detention centre in London.
The Home Office confirmed the 51-year-old detainee died at Harmondsworth immigration removal centre.
“Our thoughts are with his next of kin at this sad time,” a Home Office spokesperson said. “As is the case with any death in detention, the police have been informed and the matter referred to the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman.
“We will make no further comment while this is being investigated.”
The Independent pointed out that Harmondsworth site – the largest detention centre in Europe – had the highest number of self-harm cases in UK, adding that there were 150 incidents of detainees requiring medical treatment for self-harm over a 20-month period between January 2016 and August 2017.
