What does a holding cell in the UK look like?

Setting: modern day England.

Story: My main character is arrested in England (I'm not sure on which city at the moment) and brought to a holding cell at the local police station for the night.

Questions: What does a typical british holding cell look like? Would he be alone or with others? What would happen with him before he is put in the cell?

If he's wearing a t-shirt, boxers, jeans, a long-sleeved sweater and shoes without laces, would any of his clothing be taken away from him?

Search terms: "what does a holding cell look like", "holding cell UK/England", "being arrested in the UK" "what happens when you are arrested in England" and several other variations of these search terms.

If anyone has any tips to search terms that bring back less newspaper articles and more of the info I want, or the answers to any of my questions I would really appreciate it!
