Confusion Over Yarl's Wood

The Family Unit at the Yarl's Wood Immigration Detention in Bedfordshire is to close.

The announcement was made by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg during Prime Minister's Question Time.

He was standing in for David Cameron at the Dispatch Box and the announcement came at the end of a bad tempered session.

In his answer he gave the impression that the entire centre was closing - Heart has since been told that it was a slip of the tongue and Mr Clegg meant to say the Family Unit was closing.

Mr Clegg was asked what concrete action will be taken to stop the detention of children by Cambridge MP Julian Huppert.

Mr Clegg called the detention of children a moral outrage and said plans would be brought forward to close Yarl's Wood.
