'Too many' prisoners locked in cells at HMP Risley


Too many prisoners spend daytime locked in their cells at a Cheshire prison, a report has said. Chief Inspector of Prisons Nick Hardwick also said the use of strip-and-squat searching at HMP Risley was "disproportionate and inappropriate". Mr Hardwick also criticised the "lacklustre approach" to education following a recent inspection. The prison, near Warrington, is improving, but still has challenges to overcome, he said.
