A Surrey prison is under fire for holding a female inmate in segregation in a "squalid" cell for more than five years. The discovery was made during an unannounced visit to HMP Bronzefield women's prison near Ashfield, Surrey, in April, said the chief inspector of prisons, Nick Hardwick.
In the inspection report he said:
"We were dismayed that the woman who had already been in the segregation unit for three years in 2010 was still there in 2013. Her cell was unkempt and squalid and she seldom left it."
