Criticism for 'flagship' prison

PUBLISHED August 24, 2004

A prison in Surrey has been criticised for its lack of work and training for inmates despite once being hailed as a flagship jail.

Coldingley Prison was once a leader in training, resettlement and education. A new report by the Chief Inspector of Prisons, Anne Owers, found a fifth of prisoners were not in education or work and resettlement programmes were poor.
