The programme goes undercover in an immigration removal centre, which is a staging post for people who face deportation from the UK and comprises a mix of detainees who have overstayed visas or are seeking asylum seekers and foreign national criminals who have finished prison sentences.
The covert footage was recorded by a custody officer and reveals widespread self-harm and attempted suicides in a centre where drugs are rife.
