Two councils and local man seek judicial review of Home Office plans to accommodate thousands at two airfield sites

Ministers’ plans to put thousands of asylum seekers into two military bases have been challenged in the high court, as dozens of people were moved on to one of the sites.

West Lindsey district council is challenging the government over the plans to move people in to RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire, while Braintree district council and local man Gabriel Clarke-Holland are bringing a case over moves to Wethersfield airbase in north Essex, where the Home Office started placing asylum seekers on Wednesday.
