Maximum Insecurity Prisons


Security alerts lead to change of locks at jails
(Filed: 05/07/2006)

All locks in two prisons are being changed at a cost of hundreds of thousands of pounds after separate security breaches.
One incident happened yesterday when a member of the Independent Monitoring Board, formerly known as the Board of Visitors, left a set of keys on a table in an unnamed jail's staff canteen, which is run by inmates. He was reported to have resigned.
The second breach occurred last week after a media visit to Feltham young offenders institution in west London. ITV was accused of broadcasting shots of a prison key.
