Ranby Prison: Chronic staff shortfalls - claim

Glyn Travis, Assistant Secretary of the Prison Officers' Association (POA) said today's disturbance was "no surprise" to the POA.

"It's all down to chronic staff shortfalls and a management that are hell-bent on delivering things they can't deliver safely. Prisoners are saying 'We're not dealing with this'. "They will react."
