Winchester inmates at risk of violence at overcrowded jail

Prisoners feel unsafe and are at risk of violence at "seriously overcrowded" HMP Winchester, a report says.

Prison inspectors carried out an announced visit at the prison one year after branding it "neglected and drifting" in a March 2013 report.

They found it had failed to improve sufficiently and raised concerns about overcrowding and violence.

The National Offender Management Service (NOMS) said it would "drive forward further improvement".
