Hundreds of prisoners went on the rampage in Ashwell Prison at Oakham, Rutland in Britain’s worst jail riot for nearly 20 years. More than 400 inmates broke out of their cells and set fire to jail buildings. Several prisoners smashed their way out into the prison grounds, but none are believed to have escaped. The trouble started when officers found an inmate drunk on hooch – potent alcohol brewed by prisoners – wandering in the grounds.
