As at 31 March 2018 (the latest published data), 37 Foreign National Offenders were held at HM Prison Leicester and 107 were held at HM Prison Gartree.

We are absolutely committed to removing Foreign National Offenders from the UK and continue to work closely with international governments to increase the number of prisoners deported. Since 2010, over 42,000 Foreign National Offenders have been removed from the United Kingdom.
