Metal grilles are to be placed over prison cell windows to prevent convicts using catapults to get drugs. Inmates at Liverpool jail were using rubber gloves tied to cell window bars to form crude catapults. They shot a weight, with string attached, over the fence, to which accomplices attached drugs for reeling in.
If the quantity of illicit drugs taken into prison by that route is equal to one percent of the amount taken in by corrupt staff, I should be very surprised indeed. Just think about it. Where do they get the rubber gloves from? Just how elastic are they? How far away is the fence? How does the accomplice know where to be and when to be there? I don't believe a word of it, and if the grilles are really being installed someone has been conned.
