Home Office v TR and another

Immigration – Detention. In a false imprisonment claim, arising from the detention of the first respondent mother and the second respondent son, pending removal from the UK, the judge had erred in, among other things, a paucity of relevant findings of fact. Accordingly, the Queen's Bench Division allowed the appeal by the appellant Home Office against the judge's decision to award damages to the respondents, and also allowed the respondents' cross-appeal against the decision that the whole of the mother's detention had not been unlawful.
