Ex-officer 'fears for' staff at Erlestoke prison

A former prison officer at Erlestoke took early retirement because he says the prison is dangerous for staff and prisoners.

Keith Conway from Trowbridge had 28 years experience as a prison officer. One of his friends had his jaw broken in the recent disturbance at Erlestoke.

He said one of the problems was the prison management team didn't listen to staff on the ground.
