Mitie profits over £2m from detention centres despite criticisms

Mitie Care and Custody, the company that runs the majority of Britain's immigration detention centres, has recorded a six fold increase in its annual profits. The firm cashed in over £2 million for the last financial year, up from £333,000.

The company's director attributed the profit rise to taking over the Harmondsworth and Colnbrook detention centres outside Heathrow airport in September 2014. The Home Office is paying Mitie £180m over an eight year contract to run these centres.

This contract has proved highly profitable for the company, but comes amid deteriorating care and decreasing staff morale at those centres, which used to be run by rival outsourcing giants Serco and the Geo Group.
