The Governor of Winchester Prison, David Rogers, has defended the institution from criticism after an announced inspection. In a new report the Chief Inspector of Prisons, Nick Hardwick - said while HMP Winchester had deteriorated sharply in recent times, its new leadership was making improvements.
The criticisms included findings that more than 50% of the inmates said they had felt unsafe at some time; and that while the jail had taken action to combat the supply of drugs, a third of inmates said it was easy to obtain drugs, and one in 10 said they had developed a drug problem while in jail.
