Woodhill prison : Family say 'no lessons learnt' after man's death



The family of a man who killed himself at a jail with the highest number of suicides in England and Wales say the prison has not "learned any lessons". HMP Woodhill in Milton Keynes had five suicides in 2015. Relatives of Kevin Scarlett, who killed himself in 2013, claim there were missed opportunities to prevent his death and "nothing has changed" since. Prison minister Andrew Selous MP said the jail launched a review into the way prisoners at risk were supported.A Prisons and Probation Ombudsman report into the death also highlighted a number of concerns at HMP Woodhill.Mr Selous said: "We make every effort to learn from each death."
