Prison staff held a protest in Northallerton today. The prison is due to close, with the loss of almost 200 jobs. The Government wants to close four prisons in total, in favour of two new high-capacity 'superjails'.
Staff are being offered relocation, but with the nearest jail over an hour away, it's feared many will have little choice but to choose redundancy.
