Long Lartin prison: 'disturbance' breaks out at high-security jail

Prison officers are dealing with an “ongoing” disturbance at the high-security Long Lartin prison in Worcestershire.

A Prison Service spokesperson said: “We are currently managing an ongoing incident at HMP Long Lartin.

“We are absolutely clear that offenders who behave in this way will be punished and face spending extra time behind bars.”

Last month two prisoners at the 622-capacity Category A jail were convicted of murdering a fellow prisoner at the jail – the fourth homicide there in the past four years.
