Devon prison officers back at work

Friday morning walk out called off at lunchtime

The industrial action has been triggered following a highly critical report about HMP Bedford.

The Prison Officers' Association is accusing the Government of failing to make prisons safe places to work.

Officers at Channings Wood near Newton Abbot have joined the protest. Prison officers are not allowed to strike, so this is just a walk out.
