High on floor cleaner


PRISONERS are risking death with DIY drugs made with bleach and floor cleaner, a jail report has revealed.

Guys Marsh, a Category C jail near Shaftesbur­y, Dorset, suffered 845 medical incidents linked to DIY versions of the so-called zombie drug Spice.

The Independen­t Monitoring Board report said: “Chemical content included bleach, floor cleaner and even petrol.

“A particular­ly dangerous batch was responsibl­e for a period of the most serious incidents in late July. The quick action of all staff involved saved lives.”

The Prison Service has increased drug testing and security.
