'Lack of purposeful activity' at Hydebank Wood prison

Brendan McGuigan of Criminal Justice Inspection has said there is a lack of 'purposeful activity' at Hydebank Wood.

Mr McGuigan was speaking after a report was published that makes more than 150 recommendations for improvements at the women's prison and young offenders centre in Belfast.

He says that one visit, he found a young man who said that taking drugs was the only way he could get through his time at Hydebank.
