Of­fi­cers stop ‘dis­or­der’ on prison wing

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News -

SPE­CIALLY trained of­fi­cers were brought in to deal with dis­or­der at a jail af­ter in­mates re­fused to go back to their cells.

The dis­tur­bance, which lasted nearly four hours, took place on one wing of cat­e­gory B HMP Hewell in Tarde­bigge, Worces­ter­shire, on Fri­day night.

The Prison Ser­vice said it was not a riot, and no staff or pris­on­ers were in­jured. A spokesman said: “We do not tol­er­ate in­dis­ci­pline that threat­ens other pris­on­ers and staff, and those in­volved will be pun­ished.”

In Fe­bru­ary, a re­port said the prison was not “pro­vid­ing a ser­vice fit for the 21st cen­tury”.
