Jersey prison staff accused of misconduct

Related Stories

Two female members of prison staff accused of breaching a code of conduct have resigned.

The women, who worked at Jersey's La Moye Prison, quit before the misconduct allegations could be investigated.

One resigned a few days ago and the other on Wednesday morning, meaning the two separate investigations into the claims were abandoned.

Prison Governor Bill Millar said the reasons for any individuals resigning were private matters.

No details of the allegations have been revealed.

Earlier this month questions were asked in the island's government about alleged misconduct by staff at La Moye.

It followed allegations in a national newspaper that a former prison drugs counsellor had an affair with convicted drug dealer Curtis Warren at the prison.
