Mixed findings following prison inspection

Wed, 05 Oct 2011

An Inspection at the Isle of Man Prison shows there's still a number of areas in need of improvement.

The report into the visit from earlier this year showed that there is a good standard of accommodation, a safe environment and good healthcare at the Prison.

However, the report says there aren't enough activities for prisoners, there are problems with drugs and there's no strategy to reduce re-offending.

A number of reviews and changes have already been made since the inspection.

Alison Gomme, the Governor of the Prison says the facility is always looking to make improvements [play clip]
