Asylum seekers board Bibby Stockholm – cheaper than hotels

The barge will house up to 500 people – critics call the plan inhumane, but the government says it’s cheaper than using hotels.

There’s been considerable local opposition, with fears about the asylum seekers‘ welfare and the impact on local services

Asylum seekers can come and go from the site, but are asked to sign in and out.

A letter says there’s wi-fi, English classes, an on-site nurse, and “entertainment areas” on board.

The barge houses up to 500 men aged between 18 and 65 – the capacity has been increased by putting bunk beds in cabins.
