Open Prison

This week, the former Huntercombe Young Offenders Institution became Huntercombe Prison, with a change in the ages of its clientele.  The former young offenders institution in Oxfordshire had been housing 15 to 18-year-old males since 2000, but because of a drop in the number of younger people being imprisoned it was decommissioned and has now reopened as a Category C prison for up to 370 adults.

Intriguingly, the BBC reporter who interviewed the new Governor said "It opens its doors today".

Errr . . . Hang on . . .
