A new sprinkler system at a fire-struck immigration detention centre was approved last night.

More than 100 detainees at Campsfield House were evacuated during a major fire there in October.

The fire service said afterwards that the blaze would not have spread to such an extent had a sprinkler system been installed.

Cherwell District Council’s planning committee approved the planning application at a meeting in Banbury.

The darn place should be closed down after they send everyone back to where they came from.
