Young offenders riot: 'Youths smashed all they could'

More than 50 inmates have been involved in a second night of rioting at a young offenders institution in South Yorkshire, the Prison Service has said.

About 55 prisoners at Moorland Young Offenders Institution near Doncaster refused to return to their cells on Wednesday evening.

They surrendered more than eight hours later after officers in riot gear were called in.

It is the second riot in two nights at the centre.

Rick Midgley, from the Prison Officers' Association, was on duty at the time and said that those involved in the rioting targeted "everything they could smash and throw".
