Campaigners have been camped outside Oxfordshire’s immigration detention centre to show solidarity with detainees on hunger strike.

The strike at Campsfield House began on Wednesday morning and continued Thursday night, with the demand to close all UK immigration detention centres.

Detainees believe their detention is a breach of their human rights.

Hunger striker Musawar Khan said: “All of our friends want the media’s support. Authorities do not want to listen to us.”
