Jail 'lost its way', says report

PUBLISHED June 2, 2005

A report by the Chief Inspector of Prisons has blamed inconsistent management for a catalogue of problems at Bristol Prison.

The report highlighted problems with safety and race relations, and said inmates do not have enough structured activities to occupy their time.
Ann Owers said the prison had "lost its way", blaming the fact the jail had three different governors in two years.
