Glyn Travis of the Prison Officer Union claims prisons are so comfortable that inmates do not want to escape as it's too easy to get hold of drugs, mobile phones and even prostitutes
Mr Travis blames a shortage of prison officers, and an abundance of game consoles and TVs. In one instance a dealer used a ladder to break into prison with drugs but at no point did any of the inmates attempt to use the same ladder as a means of escape.
Travis also claims drugs are so rife that they can be bought for less than their equivalent street value. A spokes person for the MOJ has counter argued "The punishment of the court is loss of liberty - harsh regimes do not lead to rehabilitation"
