The Wellingborough MP Peter Bone has said he's optimistic that new Justice Secretary Chris Grayling may be persuaded to keep Wellingborough prison open.
Currently the prison is earmarked for closure, a move which could mean the loss of around 600 jobs in the town.
Mr Bone says Chris Grayling has promised to visit the prison and reassess the situation.
