Serco, the outsourcing group, has apologised for what the Home Office described as the "totally inappropriate" use of a stretch limousine to transport a group of asylum seekers from London to Manchester.
Images have emerged of a 16-seat Hummer in the village of Longford, near Heathrow, where a hotel has been using houses to provide temporary accommodation for asylum seekers.
Reacting to reports that the vehicle was used to move a number of people to Manchester from the village, the Home Office indicated that the vehicle had been hired by Serco and said on Tuesday that it had expressed "strong disapproval".
