Illegal migrants will be moved back on to the Bibby Stockholm barge next week | The Sun

ILLEGAL migrants will be moved back on to the Bibby Stockholm accommodation barge next WEEK, The Sun can confirm.

At a town hall meeting in Portland, Dorset, today, 38 migrants were informed they'd be taken back onto the vessell following a Legionnaires' outbreak.

Residents were forced to evacuate two months ago.

All asylum seekers on board were put in different accommodation after the bug was detected in the water.

But The Sun understands the giant ship now has the all clear for habitation again.

A Home Office source said: "As we’ve always made clear, migrants will be going back on the barge.

"We are determined to end the use of expensive hotels and the barge is part of that plan, irrespective of the howls of outrage from Labour and their pals in the charities and law firms."

Legionella bacteria can result in a serious type of lung infection called Legionnaires' disease – which in the worst cases can be fatal.

It is usually transmitted by inhaling small droplets of infected water but it can't be passed on from person to person.

There can be small, harmless amounts of the bacteria in water sources like ponds and rivers.

But if it gets into an environment where it can grow, such as an air conditioning system, it will multiply quickly.

No asylum seekers previously based on the huge barge tested positive for Legionnaires' disease.

The move back to Bibby comes just one week after Home Secretary Suella Braverman vowed to do "whatever it takes" to finally end illegal migration in Britain.

In a blistering conference speech that fired-up the Tory faithful, she pledged to confront a "hurricane" of global migration that risks “millions” more coming to Britain. 

She slammed "Sir Keir take the knee Starmer" for being weak on borders and bulldozed the "luxury beliefs brigade" who dismiss fears of uncontrolled immigration as racism.

Promising to get tougher, Ms Braverman admitted successive governments "have been too slow to recognise the scale of the problem and far too squeamish about being smeared as racist to properly bring order to the chaos".
