Cardiff prison governor Helen Ryder welcomes report

Great opportunities for learning and work are behind Cardiff prison’s success, its governor has said.

Helen Ryder said she was pleased a report by the chief inspector of prisons Peter Clarke had picked out the positive prisoner-staff relationships and culture.

His report said the prison had "bucked the national trend of rising violence".

But he also warned about the "extremely high figure" of 47% of its inmates who were homeless on release.
