A network of resettlement jails, including several in London, has been unveiled by the Justice Secretary as part of a shake-up of the prison estate.
The introduction of 70 resettlement prisons across England and Wales will see the majority of offenders released from prisons in, or close to, the area in which they will live, Chris Grayling said.
Existing prisons up and down the country will function as resettlement prisons with a trial starting in the north west of England in the autumn.
The Justice Secretary announced a raft of prison closures covering some 2,600 inmate places in January.
