For­get ITV1’S HMP Ayles­bury – th­ese are the world’s PROPER tough­est prisons

Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By NEIL GOOD­WIN

LIFE can be tough in Bri­tish prisons – there’s no

the food’s shite and you’ve only got a crappy old PlayS­ta­tion 2.

So it’s no sur­prise some of our pris­on­ers get narked, gob off and swear a lot. This is what we saw in ITV’s ‘hard-hit­ting’ doc about Bri­tain’s tough­est prison – ap­par­ently it’s in Ayles­bury!!

Now, no of­fence to Buck­ing­hamshire’s finest, but if this is the tough­est, hard­est, most dan­ger­ous prison we’ve got then it’s an ab­so­lute f***ing joke.

Be­cause it’s like Buck­ing­ham Palace when you com­pare it to some of the sick­est, blood­i­est and dead­li­est prisons in the world. Th­ese are places where ac­cess­ing Sky Sports isn’t a pri­or­ity. You’re more wor­ried about get­ting stabbed in the face, arse raped and EATEN by fel­low in­mates.

Th­ese are places so dis­gust­ing they make ex­e­cu­tion seem like a fort­night’s hol­i­day in Ibiza.

Here, we take a look at some of the world’s nas­ti­est nicks. THE last place you’ll find a prison war­den here is in the prison.

They refuse to step in­side the place be­cause it’s way too dan­ger­ous – which is fair enough.

Be­cause what you will find in­side Luri­g­an­cho Prison is a deadly mix of nut­ters, drugs, weapons and killer dis­eases.

With prison guards rarely go­ing into the com­pound, the pris­on­ers are left to look af­ter them­selves.

It has al­lowed pow­er­ful prison gangs to de­velop with each block hav­ing its own leader who con­trols ev­ery­thing – who gets the food, who gets the drugs and who gets mur­dered.

With the gang lead­ers dish­ing out the food – one dish of gruel per day – the pris­on­ers have no choice but to fol­low or­ders.

Mur­ders and bru­tal at­tacks are com­mon with an av­er­age of two peo­ple get­ting killed EACH DAY. Th­ese are mainly or­dered by the prison lead­ers as a way of re­solv­ing squab­bles. Guns and knives are eas­ily avail­able and of­ten sup­plied by bribed guards.

The other ma­jor killer is AIDS. One of the big prob­lems in the prison is the num­ber of in­mates shag­ging each other.

One of the cell blocks, Pav­il­lion 13, is ded­i­cated to trans­ves­tites and ho­mo­sex­u­als who are pimped out by prison lead­ers.

The prison has a his­tory of psy­cho ri­ots. On one oc­ca­sion in 1986 the au­thor­i­ties ex­e­cuted 125 in­mates af­ter an out­break of vi­o­lence.

But their pre­ferred method of con­trol th­ese days is drugs.

The au­thor­i­ties al­low in­mates to take ‘ pasta ba­sica’ – co­caine mixed with to­bacco – as they think the zonked out pris­on­ers are less of a risk.
