A prison worker has been arrested on suspicion of raping a woman at a jail.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said a woman reported she had been attacked at HMP Forest Bank, Salford, on Saturday.

A 25-year-old man has since been released under investigation and GMP said inquiries were ongoing.

Sodexo Justice Services, which runs the prison, said it was "working closely with the police in their investigation concerning the arrest of a member of staff".

The prison - which opened in 2000 and holds up to 1,500 male prisoners from the age of 18 - said it cannot make any further comment.
