Inmates to face criminal charges over riot

Inmates at an open prison in England who rioted on New Year's Eve may face criminal charges.

That was the message from the prisons minister during a visit to the site of Ford Prison in West Sussex.

The Prison Officers' Association said prisoners set fire to the building after staff tried to carry out breathalyser tests.

Sophie Hutchinson reports.
