Jail inmates have nothing to do

PUBLISHED February 25, 2005

Canterbury Prison has been severely criticised for struggling to achieve its objectives.

In a report released on Friday, the Chief Inspector of Prisons said 40% of the 280 inmates at the training and resettlement jail had nothing to do.
It said they spent at least 19 hours a day locked in cells which are old, in poor condition and overcrowded.
