Following a report into the safety standards at Lincoln Prison, the Chief Inspector of Prisons has said the report is "very concerning".
HMP Lincoln has some strengths it can build on. However, this was undermined by a serious lack of professionalism in many areas that compromised safety and the smooth running of the prison. Some of this required further investigation and action by the Prison Service nationally.
Mr Hardwick also said that inspectors would make a follow-up visit to the prison shortly and set out where and how improvements could be made.
