An inmate at HMP Woodhill was caught with a copy of al Qaida magazine Inspire, the Ministry of Justice has revealed.
New figures reveal a number of instances of the banned publication being discovered at high-security prisons over the past five years.
The inmate at HMP Woodhill in Milton Keynes was found with a copy in 2013. Other prisoners at HMP Manchester, Belmarsh Prison in London and HMP Frankland in Durham also had the magazine confiscated.
The magazine formed part of the prisoners' defence paperwork, but possession of it could be a criminal offence. In each case it was removed.
The information was released in response to a parliamentary question tabled by shadow justice secretary Richard Burgon.
