SERIOUS DISTURBANCE HMP BIRMINGHAM

Leaders of the POA have once again been made aware of a serious incident within our Prison System.

Currently the whole facts surrounding the incident at HMP Birmingham are not known. National Resources have been deployed to deal with this incident involving approximately 300 prisoners within 2 Prison Wings. No staff injuries have been reported and staff are currently monitoring the situation and awaiting national support, through mutual aid.

This is another stark warning to the Ministry of Justice that the Service is in crisis.

 

End.
