The murals in question were painted over in the Kent Intake Unit at Dover.
The overwhelming majority of unaccompanied children who passed through the location last year were largely teenagers. It was not felt that the murals were age appropriate. We provide high-quality facilities at the Kent Intake Unit, which is fully equipped to meet all the needs of unaccompanied children upon arrival in the UK. Our priority is to move children on from the facility as quickly as possible, into a suitable Local Authority placement.
