MP: "Inmates have been running Ranby Prison"

Labour MP John Mann, whose Bassetlaw constituency includes the prison, said his repeated warnings that "dysfunctional" management and serious staff shortages would lead to disaster had been ignored by ministers and prison officials. He said there were 80 fewer prison officers than previously - a 20% reduction - with many experienced individuals having been "forced out" over the past two years.

"It is a prison where, for quite a time, it's been clear prisoners have been running the prison. There are not the numbers or the expertise among the staff to deal with it. The governors were warned, the Government was warned, by me and by many others, that this would lead to disaster. I have raised this directly with the prisons minister more than once."
