More than 20 people have been charged in connection with a riot in a South Yorkshire prison more than a year ago.
Sixteen men are to face charges of rioting and a further six with violent disorder following the disturbances at Moorland Prison in Doncaster.
They are due to appear at Doncaster Magistrates' Court on Thursday.
About £1m of damage was caused and several wings had to be closed after three days of rioting in November 2010.
