Jail staff 'bullied by inmates'

PUBLISHED July 29, 2005

Staff at the privately-run prison Rye Hill prison are being bullied by inmates, the jail watchdog says.

Chief Inspector of Prisons Anne Owers has demanded urgent action after finding unsafe conditions at the Warks jail, which is run by GSL UK Ltd.
Inexperienced officers ignored evidence of contraband and misbehaviour to "survive," the report said.
