“While the specific allegations made at Brook House must be investigated and those responsible brought to justice, this is a much wider problem than the actions of one government sub-contractor,” she added.

Meanwhile, legal representatives for Mr Bigzad are lodging a new asylum claim after his initial application for protection was declined in March last year.

A spokesperson for G4S said they could not respond to his direct claims but added: “Investigations into staff conduct at Brook House are underway and to date three people have been dismissed.

A cross-party Parliamentary inquiry into the use of immigration detention concluded that people were being imprisoned “completely unnecessarily” in many cases and recommended a 28-day limit for immigration detention, which should be a “last resort”.

A separate report by Stephen Shaw also highlighted the impact of indefinite detention and called for exceptions for vulnerable people including rape victims, PTSD sufferers and pregnant women – following at least six recent cases where the UK was found to be violating the European Convention of Human Rights.

Of more than 28,000 people detained at immigration centres in a year, more than half are eventually released back into the community, she said, “begging the question as to why they were held in the first place”.

When Mr Bigzad was eventually removed from Brook House on 12 September, he said there was no warning and when he asked to call his solicitor, the request was refused.

“It puts people in a position of uncertainty, of anxiety, and there is a direct link to a range of mental health problems – something we see very often.” The UK is the only country in Europe to enforce indefinite immigration detention, despite government-commissioned reports calling for a cap.

Recent statistics showed that 2,944 people are currently being held, including young children, pregnant women and vulnerable detainees, for periods ranging from a few days to over four years.

But the Government has rejected a time limit on principle and has not yet implemented a concession allowing automatic judicial reviews every four months. Home Office statistics show that there were almost 12,500 forced returns in 2016, including 11,000 from detention centres.
