More Prisoners To Be Released Early Due To Coronavirus

Some prisoners should be released early to help overcrowded prisons deal with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, according to the former chief inspector of prisons.

David Ramsbotham says he is “very worried” about the effect the COVID-19 pandemic is having on the country’s prisons, adding that the outbreak could deplete staff numbers, making them unable to deal with the crisis.


His comments come as a 77-year-old man with underlying health conditions at Littlehey prison in Cambridgeshire became the third prisoner to die after testing positive for coronavirus.
