Campaign to keep prison open

The MP for Wellingborough, Peter Bone, has been leading a parliamentary debate over plans to shut the prison in the town.

There was a protest against the prison's closure at Westminster before the debate. It's estimated the prison provides 600 jobs in the Wellingboroguh area. But the Ministry of Justice says the move could save around £10 million a year. It's due to close by the end of the year.
