Alex Cavendish, a prison affairs academic and blogger, told the broadcaster: "The technical term is that the staff have lost control of two wings".

While staffing levels had improved from the disastrous levels seen previous year, the board warned that too many of those walking the landings were inexperienced and lacking in confidence.
