Hull prison is to be reduced in size by around a quarter and hundreds of inmates moved to other jails as part of a cost-cutting review of prisons across the country. 282 prisoners out of the more than a thousand who are currently housed at the jail will be transferred elsewhere.
The moves should happen by April. Seven older jails are to be closed completely and there are plans for a so-called 'superprison' housing two thousand inmates elsewhere in the country. Prisons Minister, Jeremy Wright, spoke to Calendar earlier.
