The Ministry of Justice has launched an investigation after a prisoner at HMP Nottingham reportedly 'gouged his eyes out' in his cell.
The prisoner was taken to hospital on Monday following the incident.
Reports have linked the incident to an alleged protest over hot temperatures inside the prison. The Ministry of Justice has denied these claims.
The MoJ confirmed the prisoner was taken to hospital following an act of self harm but refused to release details of the nature of the injuries sustained.
