Monica Ali discusses the UK's use of immigration detention centres and, in particular, indefinite detention.

She argues that, although detention or deportation are sometimes necessary, the policy of indefinite detention is "callous and dehumanising".

She believes - as the only place in Europe that allows indefinite detention - the UK should adopt the recommendations of a recent parliamentary report and introduce a 28 day limit.
