Two prisons in the south are to close, as part of a big reorganisation of the country's jails.
Under the plans, Kingston Prison in Portsmouth, built in 1877 and holding 200 inmates, will close along with Camp Hill on the Isle of Wight which houses 600 prisoners.
The Government say there won't be any compulsory job losses - but prison staff will have to move to other jails to find work.
