Swaleside Prison: Recruitment drive to tackle violence at jail

A prison, which was criticised three months ago by inspectors for not having a plan to tackle high levels of violence, has launched a recruitment drive.

HMP Swaleside, on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent, was criticised for its staff to prisoner ratio after a riot in 2016.

It is trying to recruit a further 30 prison officers.
