UK restores order after worst prison uprising since 1990

Post  Lamplighter on Sat Dec 17, 2016 1:45 pm

LONDON (AP) December 17, 2016 — Security officers restored order Saturday at a prison in the central English city of Birmingham a day after an estimated 600 inmates seized control and launched a destructive rampage. Authorities called Friday's 13-hour takeover of HMP Birmingham the worst prison uprising since the 1990 riot in Strangeways in Manchester, which lasted 25 days and left one prisoner dead.

No staff members were injured but one prisoner remained hospitalized Saturday with a suspected broken jaw and eye socket. Trouble flared as prisoners rushed a guard and stole his keys, giving them eventual access to all four wings of the Victorian-era prison in England's second-largest city. Inmates lit fires, set off fireworks, broke into guards' offices to steal clubs and helmets, and smashed windows and toilet blocks.

"What has happened is we have got more prisoners who are more prone to serious violence - gang-related violence, very often.

"We have had a huge influx of illicit, psychoactive drugs that have been pushed into prisons - and those drugs have changed the dynamic in prisons.

"We are doing a great deal to prevent that from happening.

"It is the case that we need more staff to be able to manage the situation in prisons, but it is going to take some time to turn this around.

"There will be incidents, incidents have always happened in prisons."


Probably sounds like a silly idea, but how about more effort to stop drugs - and fireworks - getting into prisons in the first place?

One wing has been lost after an incident at Swaleside prison involving 60 inmates, says the Prison Officers Association.

There is an "ongoing disturbance" and fires have been lit at the prison on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent.

It comes after a riot last week at HMP Birmingham that involved up to 600 prisoners and was described by experts as the worst for 25 years.

Special squads managed to win back control of the jail after 12 hours of violence in which inmates set fires and stole keys and equipment.

The Swaleside incident is the fourth disturbance at an English prison in less than two months.
