  • Description

    The Million pound jail with the luxury look -- that's how the new prison at Stoke Heath, Shropshire, has been described.

    Prisons bars have been replaced by what are called "contemporary gratings". Instead of walls there are chain fences and barbed wire. According to the Home Office, the new jail is to serve as a regional training prison for "trainable ordinaries" and "steer" prisoners who are not suitable for open conditions.
