Some pretty remarkable reporting in the national press of corruption amongst prison staff at the ‘Ville on the Cally. Some 14 staff have been suspended in one go. The main story is in the Guardian here and a good comment piece today here with a startling observation of cooking crack in a prison microwave. For those with a historical bent the wikipedia piece here on Pentonville is very good with a superb picture from 1842 that i have borrowed above – the pic shows wonderfully the mud and isolation of the prison when the Caledonian Road had probably just been cut. The Prison Service site on Pentonville is here and their press statement on the corruption allegations is here. If anyone reading this is or knows a prison officer or is a former inmate there it would be fascinating to hear your perspective.
