CMS Cameron McKenna is handling the Yarl's Wood asylum centre riots claim against the Bedford Police Authority (BPA) by Group 4 insurers DJ Pye, Lloyd's syndicate 692
The claim relates to damage caused to Yarl's Wood when it was set on fire in February. The £97m claim has been lodged under the Riot Damages Act 1886, which allows companies and individuals to sue police for damage caused as a result of "persons riotously and tumultuously assembled together". BPA chairman Adrian Heffernan said: "Any claim made against the authority under the Riot Damages Act is totally outrageous and will be vigorously resisted." It is understood that the BPA will use the in-house team at Bedfordshire County Council.
