A prison officer is due to stand trial today over the death of an inmate at a Milton Keynes jail.

Joseph Travers, who worked at HMP Woodhill, is charged with manslaughter and misconduct in public office. He's due to appear at the Old Bailey in London this morning.

It comes after a 23 year old prisoner was found hanged in his cell on 8 May 2015.
