Inside high-security Rampton Hospital


A high-security hospital housing some of the UK's most violent criminals has opened its doors for one of the first times to a camera crew.

The film crew of BBC East Midlands' Inside Out was allowed into Nottinghamshire's Rampton Hospital, one of three high-secure hospitals in England, for the first time in 18 years.

The team spoke to former patients, as well as Dr Mike Harris, who runs the hospital.

Dr Harris said his "number one priority" was to safeguard the public from its 326 patients.

The hospital's former inmates include child killer Beverly Allitt and Soham murderer Ian Huntley.
