'No spare places' in Welsh jails

PUBLISHED October 21, 2005

Wales' five jails were so full on two days in the last week that there were no spare places, say prison managers.

New prisoners have been sent to jails in England because of a lack of room.
The scale of the problem emerged as a report on Swansea Prison was published that found some inmates spent 22 hours a day in cells due to overcrowding.
