Hundreds of immigration detainees and asylum seekers will be held on a prison ship brought from the US to Dorset, says The Times (p8).

They will be held on the 'Resolution', which the Prison Service intends mooring in Portland Harbour, Dorset.

Although the vessel does not need formal planning permission, the Prison Service is keen to get the backing of Weymouth and Portland BC, whose planning committee meets in February to discuss the issue.
