Rap for asylum flight restraints.
EXCESSIVE restraint was used on a flight to remove asylum seekers after "dire" warnings of trouble, a report said.
All but one of 23 detainees were put in waist belts, which can hold arms clamped to the body, on a plane taking them to France, Austria and Bulgaria.
In a briefing one boss said: "Tonight we don't mess around. If you do, you may well get hurt." But HM Inspectorate of Prisons said: "Dire warnings staff were given were not grounded in evidence."
Tascor was the contractor and parent firm Capita said: "Any decision to use restraint was done case-by-case and in line with Home Office guidance."
