Prison officers in 31 jails set for pay rises of up to £5,000

Thousands of prison officers at 31 jails in London and south-east England are to get pay rises of between £3,000 and £5,000, as part of a £12m package.

The increase means new starters could receive up to £29,500 a year.

But Mike Rolfe from the officers' trade union, the POA, said it doesn't go far enough.
