A damning report has branded a South Yorkshire prison as one of the worst in the country. A surprise inspection of Lindholme prison earlier this year found that many inmates were afraid and that alcohol and drugs were widely available.
Inspectors said the category D side of the prison had been neglected with no work or education available to prisoners. The D wing has since been closed and the prison says it is taking action to address the issues raised in the report.
Calendar's Christine Talbot spoke to Andrew Neilson from the Howard League for Penal Reform and started off by asking him what he thinks has gone wrong at Lindholme prison.
