Three prison officers have been taken to hospital after an outbreak of violence at Lewes Prison. The Prison Officers' Association says 30 prisoners refused to return to their cells after exercise, and officers had to draw batons to restore order. They say 12 inmates who were involved in the incident have been moved to other jails. The Ministry of Justice is investigating.
