Imran Hussain MP, Labour’s Shadow Justice Minister, responding to the urgent notification issued at HMP Nottingham, said:
“This is yet more evidence of the deep crisis across our prison system.
“Tory cuts to staff and budgets have fuelled an epidemic of violence that has seen assaults and self-harm at record levels.
“The Justice Secretary needs to take urgent action to sort out this crisis at HMP Nottingham and ensure that the whole of our prisons system is safe for prisoners and staff alike.”
