Unlawful detention judicial review in respect of an individual with an extremely poor offending history and high risk of harm, but with no realistic prospect of removal. It raised important issues regarding the grace period under Hardial Singh in relation to the time permissible for the SSHD to obtain and/or provide suitable accommodation in the event that detention was unlawful. EH’s claim was allowed and he was released from detention.
