Prisons Again

The prisons crisis has not gone away. Despite early releases and a scramble to transfer prisoners to open establishments (that are not quite as full as the closed variety) London prisons are now regularly putting up the House Full notices. One day this week the last three prisoners did not leave my court until nearly 9 pm, and then they were being transferred to the cells at another courthouse. At times our contractors have to ship them out to the Midlands or West - anywhere there are a few spaces.
Watch out for further panic measures soon.
