A north Suffolk prison could be set to close as a result of government plans to reduce the overall prison budget it's been announced today.
Blundeston Prison, near Lowestoft, was one of four units targeted for closure in an announcement by the Secretary of State for Justice, Chris Grayling.
The Government say that the four closures could save them up to £30 million a year from the prison budget.
The date of the closure is yet to be announced.
