Jail still in lockdown
A MELBOURNE remand centre remains in lockdown after a 15hour riot as the State Government maintains it will not lift a smoking ban that sparked the violence. Three prison guards and a police officer were injured after prisoners overran the Metropolitan Remand Centre at Ravenhall, lighting fires and causing millions of dollars worth of damage. Six prisoners were also hospitalised, including two bitten by dogs and one with a suspected broken jaw. Premier Daniel Andrews says the prison smoking ban, phased in since February, will not be changed.
