Peterhead prisoner barricade resolved

An incident which saw inmates in Peterhead Prison barricade themselves into a cell has been resolved.

The Scottish Prison Service (SPS) said three prisoners had been involved, and that trained staff had been negotiating with them.

The SPS said it had not been given a specific issue for the protest and that the rest of the prison had been running normally.

The incident, which began on Sunday, ended shortly before 11:00 on Monday.
