G4S has responded to the government's announcement that the security form has lost its contract to run Wolds prison:
We are disappointed by today's announcements.
As the leading private provider of prison management in the UK, we have 20 years of experience of running prisons for the Ministry of Justice.
Our performance across all six prisons we run has been to a high standard with every aspect of performance either meeting or exceeding the key performance indicators applied by the MoJ.
We look forward to discussing the contract award decision with the MoJ within the next few days to determine why we were unsuccessful.
