Prisoner took own life - contributed to by neglect

A man who was found hanged in his cell at Parc Prison, near Bridgend, in August 2010 took his own life "in circumstances contributed to by neglect", an inquest jury has ruled today.

The inquest at Aberdare Coroner's Court heard how Shaun Beasley, who was 29, was known to have a history of self-harm, paranoia and depression, and was placed on a healthcare wing of the prison where he could be checked every half an hour.
