A recent news report provided a fascinating glimpse into UK prisons with drugs and weapons on open display. It touched on subjects we have covered in previous posts such as drugs, violence, overcrowding and staffing.  

Some of the footage is shot by inmates on mobile phones. One clip shows cannabis being divided into small packages for sale and another shows a large knife in a prisoner’s cell.

The brief film below was first shown on Channel 4 News on 29 January.
