The prison system on prison island is at last on the verge of outright rebellion tonight as Hull Prison is on the brink of a riot after 15 prisoners involved in the disturbance at HMP Birmingham on Friday were transferred to the jail. Inmates inside the category B prison went on a violent rampage, attacking screws and set fire to CCTV cameras. It comes just two days after 600 inmates trashed four wings of the Winson Green prison in Birmingham, West Midlands. Its revealed that screws were set upon and prisoners refused to return to their cells after the men from Birmingham arrived. The jail, home to more than 1,000 prisoners, was then put on lock down following the disturbance.
Its claimed that HMP Hull is ‘a powder keg ready to go off! They are trying to incite riots here and we’ve had a really bad couple of days here. They set fire to the cameras just after they got here and a senior officer was assaulted by who we believe to be one of the main instigators of what happened in Birmingham.’
