Hotel accommodation for migrants will cost up to £70m this year

The most recent official figures show that around 8,700 migrants were accommodated in nearly 90 different hotels across the UK in February, compared with 1,200 in March last year. The Covid pandemic has partly contributed to the surge in use of hotels after the Home Office and its contractors Serco, Mears and Clearsprings paused the movement of asylum seekers from existing properties.
