The Prison Service says there has also been a disturbance at Rye Hill Prison, near Rugby in Warwickshire, but it was unrelated to the Maidstone Prison incident.
"There was a passive demonstration at HMP Rye Hill where around 60 offenders refused to return to their cells," she said.
"This was peacefully resolved within a few hours."
